Steel under way on Cambridge office scheme

September 13, 2017 by NSC in Weekly News
Steel construction is now under way on what has been described as Cambridge’s largest speculative office development.

The Grimshaw-designed Grade A offices will provide over 14,800m² of space across two eight-storey blocks with an underground car park. It also forms a key part of the CB1 masterplan that will regenerate a large area around the city’s main station.

Aviva Investors is funding the 50-60 Station Road development that will help to ensure that Cambridge continues to attract large multinational firms and retains its position as a major business and technology hub.

Working on behalf of main contractor Galliford Try, Billington Structures is the steelwork contractor for the job.

Galliford Try has a strong track record in the centre of Cambridge as it recently completed the new Ibis hotel and cycle park adjacent to Cambridge train station.

CB1 is providing a significant boost to Cambridge’s economy by creating a thriving gateway to the city and attracting businesses, residents and visitors to the area. The CB1 area is already home to a growing cluster of global and UK companies including Microsoft, Mott MacDonald, Deloitte, Thales, Slater and Gordon, AstraZeneca and Apple.
