Steelmen score a win at the new home of English football.
And the award has secured one of Corus' largest contracts in recent years because of the company's ability to offer a 'total steel supply solution'.
Corus has been awarded 'prime supplier' status for the supply of steel products going into the new Wembley National Stadium by steelwork fabrication specialists Cleveland Bridge UK.
This is one of the largest contracts awarded to Corus in recent years and comprises approximately 21,000 tonnes of steel sections, plates and tubes.
The key to Corus securing the deal was its ability to offer what it calls a 'total steelwork solution', whereby the company offers a complete materials supply and management package, working in close partnership with Cleveland Bridge.
Graham Hillier, director of construction for Corus said: "We were able to offer a winning package comprising certainty of supply, project and materials management expertise, and a trusted, long-established working relationship.
"As prime supplier, we've been given a strong vote of confidence from Cleveland Bridge. Corus will look after all the steel supply aspects for the project, leaving Cleveland Bridge and main contractor Multiplex to focus all their considerable expertise on building this technically challenging, world-leading sports stadium for Britain."
The total demolition, construction and fit-out programme for client Wembley National Stadium Ltd is set for completion in 2006. Work at the project will proceed in three phases: arch, bowl structure and roof.
Project architect is World Stadium Team, a joint venture between HOK Sport and Foster & Partners established in 1998 specifically for this project.
Structural and civil engineering is being conducted by Mott Stadium Consortium and the M&E contractor is Connell Mott MacDonald.
