CCL Phase 7 B, the latest phase in the Cambridge Science Park for the world-renowned Cambridge Consultants.

This latest phase, provides an extension to the existing Cambridge Consultants buildings. The latest phase will provide research and development space to compliment the recently completed phase 6 Auton building.

The Challenges

Following the successful completion of a number of previous CCL phases with SDC Building, we were again appointed to deliver the balustrade and handrail package on this project. The state-of-the-art facility had a number of initial design challenges:

  1. On the voids, there was requirement for a valued engineered option from the originally specified frameless glass balustrade.
  2. On the roof terraces, the balustrade had to be fixed down to the concrete slab which was 450mm below finished floor level. This balustrade had to be fixed in two stages to coordinate with surrounding trades.

Project Achievements

Working with SDC Building and Bidwells Building Consultants, we were contracted to provide bespoke version of the B20 Post and Infill balustrade to the central atrium and canteen area. For the stair cores we provided our B20 balustrade with satin stainless steel midrail infills. These balustrades were complemented with our 42mm diameter satin stainless steel B10 Wall Handrails. For the communal roof terrace area, we again supplied and installed the B20 balustrade with a glass infill.
