The original brief consisted of structural steelwork mainly reinforcing plates and girders throughout the building. The scope developed with new support brackets for the new stone facade at all levels, 22 structural…
ASME was very excited when this opportunity presented itself. Due to the previous steel sub- contractor going into administration, ASME was called upon to get involved in this comprehensive redevelopment to improve retail, restaurant and leisure offering at The Broadgate Circle in the heart of the city. The shape of the building required that the majority of steelwork be rolled to precise radiuses. ASME also undertook the works to adjacent building 3 which involved creating a round structure from hollow…
ASME were very excited to be involved in this impressive mixed use development of luxury apartments, office and retail space overlooking the River Thames in one of the oldest districts of London.

125 London Wall
ASME took on this project which had a very tight programme and challenging site conditions due to restricted access to the 18 floors of this iconic office building which spans London Wall at its junction with Wood Street. ASME manufactured and installed two scenic lifts with a high spec architectural finish and associated structural steelwork which required countersunk splice connections. Bespoke lifting equipment had to be engineered by ASME to transport the steel to installation locations whilst accommodating the site…
ASME were appointed to undertake refurbishment and extension works of an existing building to the North of Oxford Streets busy shopping area.

ASME were contracted to supply and install steelwork around the perimeter of an existing 7 floor atrium of this prestigious building. Steel frames had to connect and cantilever off the existing structure with new floors formed from lightweight purlins and timber. The aim of these works was to increase the lettable floor space and in turn the financial viability of the property. Working within a live building meant these works had to be carried out at night; there were strict…
ASME supplied and installed internal and external facade retentions with tie systems to buildings 36, 40-42 and 48 Oxford Street. The works had to be completed over Christmas and at night using a crane for public safety due to high pedestrian traffic during the day.
