Quadrant 3, part of a £1billion redevelopment of Regent Street, has officially opened with ASSA ABLOY Security Doors supplying over 550 high performance steel fire doors for one of London’s most ambitious West End redevelopments.
Quadrant 3 has seen the 94-year old, 1000 room Regent Palace Hotel being converted into a mix of office, retail and residential space, as part of the Crown Estate’s plans to create a new identity for Regent Street. The development from architect Dixon Jones and construction manager Sir Robert McAlpine boasts seven floors of office space, nine residential units and ground floor shops, plus an innovative energy centre.
ASSA ABLOY Security Doors supplied fire doors and duct doors, which have now been installed throughout the landmark building. Bespoke mechanically operated smoke vent doors with remote operation were also developed, as a key safety element of the building.
Commenting on the project, Brian Sofley, Commercial Director for ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said:
“Quadrant 3 had some very specific project requirements, from door design to build sequencing and we worked closely with construction manager Sir Robert McAlpine to meet these demands. The close working relationship has meant that the development has been opened within the required timescale.
“Now the development is open, we’re pleased that future tenants will be able to easily integrate an access control system, plus, any future security requirement updates can be made without modifying the doorsets themselves.”
