SHOP TALK: Stair cores for Europe's largest £85M Marks & Spencer store were completed last week in the heart of Manchester's bomb-damaged city centre. The 43,000m2 seven floor steel-framed building, due to open in November 1999, will replace the store demolished following a terrorist bomb two years ago. Consultant WSP and contractor Bovis Construction programmed erection of the six, 33m high concrete cores in advance of steelwork to maximise use of the site's two tower cranes.
