Youngs Doors supplied fire rated doorsets for this modern office block at 30 Station Road, Cambridge; a busy prestigious city centre location near the rail station.
The fire rated doorsets were certified under the BM Trada Q-mark Fire Door Manufacturers scheme giving the contractor, client and end user full confidence and traceability in the regulation compliance of this life-safety product.
80 doorsets were supplied to the project, 19 of which were supplied with glazed side screens. The door frames were in European oak and the door leaves were faced with quarter cut European oak veneer. The package included some unusually large doors, and frosted glass vision panels to certain doors.

Its innovative design is described as a ‘cube within a cube’ – a construction that provides a stylish contrast to the surrounding mix of architecture. New technologies and metering systems help reduce water use by 40% compared with similar buildings and ensure that it exceeds the Government ‘baseline’ targets for fuel and power use by more than 25%
