This proscenium beam, supporting the main stage, is the largest single element of 3,500 tonnes of steelwork to be erected on the project.
Fixing the proscenium beam is an important milestone in BAM’s construction of the £60m Leeds Arena project.
BAM construction manager Gordon Alexander said: “The proscenium beam is a crucial part of the whole structure of the Leeds Arena and an important milestone in the scheme as this is when the building really starts to take shape. Once in place it will create the archway for the stage and support the entire roof structure.”
Completion of the 13,500 capacity concert and events venue is scheduled for 2013.
