Cheesegrater steel work awarded to Severfield-Rowen

Laing O’Rourke has awarded the structural steelwork contract for The Leadenhall Building, more commonly known as the Cheesegrater, to contracting group Severfield-Rowen.

The steelwork programme will commence later this year and complete during 2012. 

The 52 storey 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, while the base will feature a 30mhigh atrium.

The tower has been designed by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Arup, for British Land Company PLC and Oxford Properties.
