The eight-storey office building is part of the 26-acre masterplan to create a new city quarter in Cambridge

50-60 Station Road Cambridge

Galliford Try has confirmed it is to build developer Brookgate’s £87m office block at 50-60 Station Road in Cambridge.

Designed by architect Grimshaw, the firm behind the upcoming expansion of Heathrow Airport, the two eight-storey blocks will provide 163,600 sq ft of space with retail at ground level.

The project, which is part of the 26-acre masterplan for a new city quarter in Cambridge from Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, is due for completion in the first quarter of 2019.

Galliford Try has already completed a new Ibis hotel and cycle park adjacent to Cambridge train station at the development.

Stephen Scard, managing director of Galliford Try’s Southern business, said: “We are delighted to be working once again with Brookgate on this exciting scheme which constitutes the largest speculative office building in Cambridge.”
