Severfield awarded steelwork package on 22 Bishopsgate

3 Nov 16 Severfield has picked up the steel package on the City of London’s 22 Bishopsgate scheme, where Multiplex is the main contractor.

The UK’s biggest structural steel has announced a total of six new contract wins worth £72m.

The 62-storey 22 Bishopsgate development has a net internal area of 1.4 million sq ft, and Severfield will deliver structural steelwork and metal decking.

The tower was acquired in 2015 by AXA Investment Managers - Real Assets, acting on behalf of a consortium of international investors, to develop a new building together with its development partner Lipton Rogers Developments. 

PLP Architecture has designed the tower, which will include social and activity-based spaces, as well as restaurants, bars and retail units.

Severfield’s other contract wins include:

  • A commercial office development in the Midlands;
  • Two distribution centres in the South East;
  • A research and development complex in Manchester; and
  • An extension to a retail complex in London

Ian Lawson, Severfield CEO, said: "We are delighted to announce these new contract wins and are excited to be working with Multiplex on such a high profile development as 22 Bishopsgate. This further demonstrates the breadth of the group's capabilities and the quality of our order book.
"The group has a longstanding history of working on iconic London buildings such as The Shard, London Bridge Station and Wimbledon No 1 Court. Our design, experience and engineering skills have resulted in a strong pipeline across a range of sectors."
