Wates Construction recently announced the completion and handover of some glossy new office premises located at One the Square in the CB1 quarter of Cambridge. The highly anticipated space has now been passed under the control of the developers, Brookgate.

Located in the CB1 Quarter, which is seeing much development as part of ongoing efforts to update and improve the area around Cambridge Railway Station, the new offices at One the Square will provide 129,295sq ft of Grade A office space and 13,379sq ft of retail space. Various additional commercial and leisure spaces will fill the remaining areas.

Designed by the architects at Perkins+Will, the new development has done more for the area than simply providing a few extra offices. Throughout the project, employment and training opportunities were created for local people via their Building Futures Initiative. The initiative consists of a two-week programme, providing valuable construction skills training to nine local jobseekers.

Ian Vickers, managing director for Wates Construction Home Counties, said of the development project, “The handover of a project to a client is always a celebrated achievement, but we are particularly proud of everything that we have delivered at One the Square and to have played such a central role in the changing commercial landscape in Cambridge.

“Key to this project has been our close partnership working with Brookgate and Abellio Greater Anglia to carefully manage what has been a very constrained site. 

“The result is an exceptional new office of the size and specification that will really set the bar for new commercial developments across the city.”
