William Hare lands latest Broadgate steel package

Posted on by in Weekly News

Steelwork contractor William Hare has won the contract to deliver the design, fabrication and installation for the latest iconic development at Broadgate in the City of London.

As reported in NSC Weekly News last month, 2 Finsbury Avenue (2FL) will comprise a 21-storey West Tower and a 36-storey East Tower, linked by a 12-storey podium. A solid and glazed sawtooth-shaped façade, characterised by triangular patterns, will be formed by a bespoke steelwork support system. The new building will be the largest on the Broadgate campus, providing 69,600m2 of new offices, as well as green, leisure and publicly accessible spaces.

The building will create a new benchmark for highly sustainable workspace in central London with BREEAM ‘Outstanding’, WELL Platinum, EPC A and NABERS 5-star ratings.

Having successfully delivered nearby 100 Liverpool Street and 1 Broadgate (see NSC April 2024), this latest scheme will further extend its longstanding association with contractor Sir Robert McAlpine and the Broadgate joint venture, between British Land and GIC.

Matthew Nesbit, Group Board Director at William Hare Group, commented: “We are delighted to have been appointed at 2FL, as an extension of the work we have already delivered on the Broadgate development.

“Being able to bring our design, fabrication and delivery capability to life on schemes like this, is testament to our market-leading position as a global steel specialist.”

Completion is expected in 2027, with global hedge fund firm, Citadel, and Citadel Securities pre-letting over a third of the development’s office space. William Hare Group is expected to have completed its works by summer 2025.
