UK steel will be used in some of London's most prestigious new buildings after William Hare Group has agreed a new partnership with British Steel.

Past projects that have helped shape the capital’s skyline include the ‘Walkie-Talkie’ and the Olympic Stadium roof transformation. Now ongoing developments – including The Scalpel at 52 Lime Street and the 40-storey skyscraper at 100 Bishopsgate – will both include steel manufactured by British Steel.

David Hodgkiss OBE, William Hare Group’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to have agreed our contract with British Steel, ensuring we continue to supply market-leading products to our customers.

The construction market is a very demanding one and William Hare, and in turn our clients, demand all the materials we use meet the highest specifications.

It is also pleasing that we can support UK manufacturing but we are not using British Steel sections in major projects for sentimental reasons. We are doing so because of the quality of the steel they manufacture and the delivery service they provide.”

British Steel was launched on June 1 after it was purchased from Tata Steel by the family investment office Greybull Capital.

And British Steel’s Commercial Director, Peter Hogg, said: “We’re all proud that William Hare selected British Steel to form this type of partnership, it is a great show of confidence in our employees and their capability.

William Hare has a global reputation for excellence, the evidence of which can be seen in the skylines of cities throughout the world.”

The steel is made at British Steel’s Scunthorpe site and the biggest sections are rolled at its Teesside Beam Mill.

100 Bishopsgate is a 40-storey office tower being developed by Brookfield and constructed by Multiplex in the heart of the city of London. The impressive development will transition from a parallelogram at its base to a rectangle at its top. British Steel is supplying WH UK with 3,500 tonnes of steel for this project.

The Scalpel is a 36-storey office building located on Lime Street in London. British Steel is supplying WH UK with 1,000 tonnes of steel for this project.
