ASSA ABLOY Security Doors secures major project at Canary Wharf’s New District

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, has been awarded the contract to supply and install fire-rated steel doorsets to the New District, a major new development on the Canary Wharf estate in London.

Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd has selected ASSA ABLOY Security Doors to supply and install over 600 steel doorsets, including personnel and fire doors. The doors supplied will be installed in the basement areas of the mixed-use development and prepared for future access control requirements.

Peter Mather, Project Manager at Canary Wharf Contractors, said:
“ASSA ABLOY Security Doors was selected as it provided an integrated manufacture, delivery and installation of doorsets and ironmogery that suited the technical and architectural needs of the project.
“This integration gives us comfort of compatibility and certification, while also allowing the future proofing of the doorsets for later requirements.”

The order features high-end ironmongery from the ASSA ABLOY Skyline range, combining sleek aesthetics with functionality and ergonomics. This makes it suitable for applicatons in modern buildings, particularly those for commercial use.

Located east on the Canary Wharf estate, the New District is built around a 211-metre, 57 storey cylindrical residential skyscraper designed by Herzog & de Meuron. Alongside residential properties, the development incorporates commercial office space, as well as retail and amenity spaces.

The production of the steel doorsets from ASSA ABLOY Security Doors is underway, with installation expected to take place throughout 2018. 

Chris Cole, Area Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said: 
“We were one of four companies initially nominated by the Adamson Associates Architects. We understand how crucial it is for a project of this scale to ensure the products supplied are fully tested, certified and compliant with the stringent fire and security requirements.
“We are honoured to collaborate with Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd again by taking part in such an ambitious development. This contributes to our recent successes with 22 Churchill Place and Jubilee Place projects, as well as the Crossrail project’s new Canary Wharf station.”
