The recently opened Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in central London features an array of architectural steelwork to the atrium, the roof and scenic lift shaft.

Steelwork contractor Bourne Special Projects (BSP) installed two scenic bridges which span the 15m width of the atrium. Both structures are eight-storeys high and are supported by macalloy bars hung from a series of roof top trusses.
