The Ludwig Erhard Haus was designed by British architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, who won the design competition run by the Berlin Chamber of Commerce for generating the best design for this prestigious building.
Goodwin supplied the large stainless steel leg and foot castings for the Ludwig Erhard Haus in Berlin. The building houses the New Stock Exchange and Berlin Chamber of Commerce. The pattern for the casting is shown here.
Stainless steel cast foot for the Ludwig Erhard Haus, assembled and in position, consisting of two cast cladding pieces and one foot piece. The castings were surface ground, grit blasted and then acid pickled in order to achieve a uniform and pleasing finish, free from rust contamination.
Stratford Regional Station is on the Jubilee Line Extension linking central London with the Docklands and Greenwich. The Jubilee line will serve the Olympic Park for the 2012 Olympic games to be held in London. Goodwin supplied the castings which support the station roof.
The building's curved roof springs from the upper-level walkway, parallel with the main railway lines, and sweeps up to a high glazed wall. Each curved roof arch is supported by a 16,000kg base casting manufactured by Goodwin. All castings were dressed and conditioned to provide a uniform and pleasing surface. The castings served both a structural and architectural function.
Syncrolift System at The Faslane Navy Base
The Faslane base, near Glasgow, is used to maintain the UK's nuclear submarine fleet and is the only facility in the world where a nuclear armed and nuclear-powered submarine can be lifted out of the water. We supplied over 600 critical castings for the 165m long Syncrolift system, housed in the covered dock building with a lifting capacity in excess of 25,000 tons.
The hanger beams were supplied finish machined and are shown here fully assembled. The ship-lift is a platform operated by 96 hoists, each of which is anchored by one of these hanger beam assemblies.
Goodwin were selected to provide the castings for the Paddington Station Masterplan extension. Due to the scale of the new roof, the use of stainless steel castings to articulate key structural junctions was an economic and visually attractive possibility, and a series of stainless steel nodes for the roof were developed and produced by Goodwin.
A combination of stainless steel and glass was a natural choice for the station's extension. With Goodwin high strength, cast stainless steel spiders, the new glass and steel enclosure at Paddington is a modern update to the high-tech spirit of the station's original Victorian engineers.
Stainless steel columns and glazing arms for the refurbished walkway canopy at the Government Cabinet Offices, Whitehall, London. Goodwin produced and machined the whole metal structure for this project and were closely involved in the design work and architectural features of the support columns.
266 cast and fabricated structural columns, supports and nodes were manufactured for the scenic lifts on the Triton Square building, London. Each column is architecturally appealing as well as being part of the support structure.
Wembley Stadium, London, England. The nodes hang from the famous arch to support the bulk of the 1,300 tonne roof.
Wembley Stadium, London, England. Goodwin supplied almost 30 tonnes of cast nodes, in a high tensile strength carbon steel, for the new Wembley Stadium.
