Steelwork for London Gateway
Reception Building

The reception building for London Gateway was erected in 2013, with BS Steels’s installation team erecting the elegant structure designed and crafted in our workshops.

London Gateway is the UK’s newest deep-sea container port, combined with Europe’s largest logistics park, currently under construction on a former Shell refinery 25 miles east of central London. Click on the video below for a full explanation.

This page features several stages of the job, starting with 3D drawings, produced in our drawing office, and steelwork being prepared in our workshop in December 2012. Following the workshop and painting phase, the steelwork was sent to specialist painters to be given a brilliant white coating. It was then delivered on site, for BS Steels to then take over again for installation and erection.

The images from the site feature some spectacular views over to the Thames estuary. Note in particular the care taken to protect the high-gloss finish, with the sections remaining in their protective wrapping throughout.

The reception building will be one of the most prominent buildings on the site, and the steelwork on view behind glass curtain walling. So BS Steels’ handiwork, including some very special engineering, will be on show to all.
