Steelwork contracts across Britain worth almost £5 million have recently been won by Kvaerner Cleveland Bridge.

In the City of London, Kvaerner Construction’s structural steel company is supplying 1,700 tonnes of structural steelwork for a Sir Norman Foster-designed building in a contract worth £2.4 million.

Working for construction manager Schal, Cleveland Bridge is fabricating, erecting and fire-protecting steel, stairs and metal decking at the nine-storey 50 Finsbury Square site for Standard Life Investments.

In Scotland the company has secured a £1.5 million deal to supply 1,450 tonnes of structural steel for three new schools. Working on Falkirk Council’s Schools PFI Project, which is being managed by Ballast Wiltshier Special Projects, Cleveland Bridge is supplying steel for Larbert High School, Dawson Park School and Braes High School in the Falkirk area.

At Eastern Generation’s Iron Bridge Power Station near Telford, which was recently badly damaged by fire, the company is mid way through a £500,000 contract to supply 350 tonnes of steel. Cleveland Bridge replaced the first 35-tonne roof truss at the station’s turbine hall just one month after winning the contract. The remainder of the steel, for the turbine hall roof and the boiler house, is due to be erected by June.
