Severfield wins steelwork for Cheesegrater tower

Laing O’Rourke has awarded the big steelwork package on the Leadenhall tower in London to Severfield-Rowen.

The 52-storey tower has been designed by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Arups, for British Land Company PLC and Oxford Properties. The 610,000 sq ft development will feature a tapered glass façade on one side which will reveal the steel bracings combined with a complex ladder frame aimed to enhance its vertical appearance.

The base will feature a 30 metre high atrium. It is set to become one of the tallest buildings in the City of London.

Chief operating officer for Severfield-Rowen, Peter Emerson, said: ”Leadenhall Street is a significant contract award for Severfield-Rowen and will be produced across all of our four manufacturing facilities in the UK. The steelwork programme will commence later this year and complete during 2012.”

Good news folks

Severfield Rowen wins Leadenhall Building sub contract

Severfield-Rowen Plc announces the award by Laing O'Rourke of the structural steelwork sub contract in respect of The Leadenhall Building in London's EC3, also known as 'The Cheesegrater.'

The iconic 52 storey, 736 feet Leadenhall tower has been designed by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Arups, for British Land Company PLC and Oxford Properties.

The 610,000 square feet development will feature a tapered glass façade on one side which will reveal the steel bracings combined with a complex ladder frame aimed to enhance its vertical appearance.

The base will feature a 30 meter high atrium. It is set to become one of the tallest buildings in the City of London.

Mr Peter Emerson COO of Severfield Rowen said that "We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract, which reflects the confidence by Laing O'Rourke in the Group's engineering and construction skills.

We have a long track record of successful project delivery with Laing O'Rourke. Leadenhall Street is a significant contract award for Severfield Rowen and will be produced across all of our four manufacturing facilities in the UK. The steelwork program will commence later this year and complete during 2012."

I bet this tower will become another icon for The City because of it's extraordinary design.

I never realised how close together Leadenhall and the pinnacle are, the construction crews could lend each other tools by throwing them to each other 400ft up!
