Ian Lawson, chief executive officer of Severfield, said: “We are delighted to announce these new contract wins and are excited to be working with Multiplex on such a high profile development as 22 Bishopsgate.

“This further demonstrates the breadth of the group’s capabilities and the quality of our order book.

“The Group has a longstanding history of working on iconic London buildings such as The Shard, London Bridge Station and Wimbledon No 1 Court. Our design, experience and engineering skills have resulted in a strong pipeline across a range of sectors.”

Previously rival William Hare had been widely held as the likely steelwork contractor to take the job.

AXA Investment Managers – Real Assets and development partner Lipton Rogers are developing the building, which will be the tallest in the Square Mile.

The other five contracts include a commercial office development in the Midlands; two distribution centres in the South East; a research and development complex in Manchester and an extension to a retail complex in London.
