One of London’s stand-out commercial developments has been constructed using structural sections supplied by British Steel.

100 Bishopsgate is a 40-storey office tower providing highly efficient and flexible floor space in the heart of the City, panoramic views across London, and a half-acre public realm to activate and enrich the environment adjacent to its double-height reception.

Transforming from a parallelogram at its base to a rectangle at the top, 100 Bishopsgate is situated just a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street Station and provides just over 83,900m² of net lettable space within its main tower and a contiguous 6-storey podium.

The 60m-long podium, adjoining the main tower along its eastern elevation, accommodates large column-free floors in excess of 4,080m². The podium is topped by a landscaped roof terrace, offering tenants on that floor a large outdoor breakout or entertaining space.

To form its eye-catching shape, two façades, north and south, feature a series of inclined columns. They are installed in a staggered configuration from ground level up to level 24, where the entire building straightens into a rectangle.

Steelwork contractor William Hare provided the steelwork for the project, which consisted of more than 6,500 individual pieces.

British Steel manufactured and supplied 3,474 tonnes of structural sections to the steelwork contractor as part of the project, which received a commendation at the 2021 Structural Steel Design Awards.

British Steel is thrilled to have worked alongside William Hare on this iconic commercial project – one that rightfully deserves the praise it has received.

We’re proud to see our quality British manufactured products being utilised right here in the UK, forming part of our capital’s awe-inspiring landscape.”
