50-60 Station Road


50-60 Station Road in Cambridge will be the tallest office block in the city and will form the centrepiece of an ambitious CB1 master plan.

The construction steel-framed 50-60 Station Road will provide 15,100m² of office space and ground floor retail units, within an eight and nine storey block, both of which is positioned above an underground car park. It comprises of cellular beams which is used in conjunction with composite metal deck flooring; this has helped to create the desired spans of up to 12m. Billington Structures worked to refine the cellular beams using plain beams and in-house plasma cutter to bring about more commonality in the structure.

Designed by architect Grimshaw, the project is part of the 26-acre masterplan for a new city quarter in Cambridge. The expansion will include residential, commercial and educational buildings in the university city. The CB1 master plan will provide the city with a new train station and transport interchange as well as Grade A office space, residential and student accommodation, retail units and hotels. The new office block is being designed to attain a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating.
