Cheesegrater remedial works to cost engineers £6million

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

STEEL specialist Severfield has revealed it will spend £6million on remedial work at the Leadenhall Building in the City of London.

Two bolts fell from the 225-metre tall skyscaper, known as the Cheesegrater, last November. In January, a third bolt fell from the building at 122 Leadenhall Street.

Most of the 3,000 bolts used by Severfield in the building are to be replaced and the listed company disclosed in its year-end results that the remedial works will cost £6million.

Speaking to newspaper City AM, Severfield’s chief executive Ian Lawson said: “These bolts were a specialist product. It is the first time we’ve used them and it is unlikely we will use them again.”

Other major projects that Severfield has worked on previously include The Shard, the Olympic Stadium, and Tate Modern.
