William Hare wins steelwork on £500m Broadgate towers

William Hare Group has won the contract to deliver the design, fabrication and installation of steelwork on the latest phase of Broadgate in the City of London.

Sir Robert McAlpine was confirmed as main contractor last month on the £500m project at 2 Finsbury Avenue to build 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 facilitated by a bespoke steelwork support system.

The new building will be the largest on the Broadgate campus, providing 750,000 sq ft of new offices, as well as green, leisure and publicly accessible spaces.

William Hare has designed its steel solution to align with the project’s overall sustainability goals, including using LEAN design principles with the supply chain.

The specialist has successfully delivered nearby 100 Liverpool Street and 1 Broadgate.

Matthew Nesbit, Group Board Director at William Hare said: “We are delighted to have been appointed at 2 Finsbury Avenue, 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.
