Severfield-Rowen wins Cheesegrater steel package

Laing O’Rourke has awarded Severfield-Rowen the major steelwork sub-contract for the Leadenhall Building, known as the Cheesegrater. 

Severfield-Rowen will deliver the structural steelwork on the iconic 52 storey tower, designed by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Arup.

The tapered glass facade on one side of the building will reveal the steel bracings

Severfield-Rowen Chief Operating Officer Peter Emerson said:  “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 programme will commence later this year and complete during 2012.”

The main construction contract to build the 610,000 sq ft British Land and Oxford Properties development was awarded to Laing O’Rourke last month.
