UK Specification provides flexible approach to One New Street Square

11 Jan 2018

ASSA ABLOY UK Specification, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, brings high specification security solutions to One New Street Square, in London.


Using its capabilities in security design and specification, ASSA ABLOY UK Specification delivered a bespoke range of complete doorset solutions worth £345,000 to London’s new retail and office building near Farringdon Station.

The 16-storey commercial building, One New Street Square, was designed by Robin Partington Architects. The building aimed to achieve BREEAM’s ‘Excellent’ environmental standard through the use of sustainable building methods throughout construction.

Working closely with the project’s principal contractor Skanska, as well as maintaining a close relationship with the architects, the ASSA ABLOY UK Specification team has delivered 204 complete doorset solutions from across the ASSA ABLOY portfolio, including high-security steel doors, architectural ironmongery and a range of door closers.

Tim Checketts, Specification Director, said: “Our team worked very closely with the client, architects and contractors to ensure that we could recommend the most suitable solutions for each aspect of the multifaceted building to combine the highest security with premium aesthetics.

“As the building aimed to be BREEAM excellent rated, it was important to the client that we had a good understanding of how to integrate our products in the building and still meet the requirements of an energy efficient building. We were able to recommend an appropriate solution to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating through the EPDs and WLC data associated within our products. This meant we were able to provide a guaranteed performance for the lifecycle of the building.”

Tim Halford, the Project Director at Skanska, said: “The BREEAM rating was very important for this project, and the team from ASSA ABLOY were on hand every step of the way to help us achieve the rating and supply fit for purpose solutions.

“We found the data ASSA ABLOY provided was extremely useful when calculating the long-term maintenance and overall performance of the building – something that helped us reduce any anticipated risks for the architect and the client. Plus the product specific EPDs formed a vital part in assessing the building’s overall energy performance.”
