High-end ironmongery application from Skyline range
The order features high-end ironmongery from the ASSA ABLOY Skyline range, combining sleek aesthetics with functionality and ergonomics. This makes it suitable for applications 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-story cylindrical residential skyscraper designed by Herzog & de Meuron. Alongside residential properties, the development space 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.

He added, “We are honoured to collaborate with Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd again by taking part in such an ambitious development project. 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.”
