CB1 – the new city quarter for Cambridge


31 October 2019

Regional construction firm celebrates construction start

Cambridge-based contractor RG Carter has marked starting construction on one of the latest buildings planned for CB1, at 30 Station Road, with a ceremony attended by the construction and planning team, as well as local stakeholders.

This milestone moment is another step for the area’s reputation  as a sustainable central business district.

The family business has been providing high-quality construction services, for nearly a century and in October saw one of their projects – Goldsmith Street, a development of council housing in Norwich, – win the prestigious Stirling Prize for architecture. Their team combines specialist knowledge with community engagement and a passion for innovation and we’re pleased to be bringing their expertise and experience to CB1.

The new building will sit opposite 21 Station Road, the first office building to be developed at CB1 and home to Microsoft Research. With some of the biggest names in tech, including Microsoft, Amazon and Samsung having already moved to CB1, it’s great to see how the estate’s masterplan is being brought to life by the people now working and living here.
