Ahmarra fire doors for student accommodation

Ahmarra fire doors for student accommodation

Ahmarra supplies over 1,000 fire doors for London’s “finest student accommodation”.

Assam Place, a former brewery and whisky warehouse on Commercial Road in East London, has been transformed into a luxury high-specification development comprising 346 luxury student accommodation units and over 37,500 square feet of commercial and retail space and has been heralded as London’s finest student accommodation

Ahmarra supplied over 1,000 high performance fire doors for this project. To complement the apartment’s vibrant interiors, the doors were faced in Formica laminate in a selection of different colours. As both safety and noise reduction were important factors in the design, the doors were fire rated from FD30 to FD120 and offered acoustic ratings up to 29 RwdB.

Main contractor and developer, Mace, played a key part in the restoration and transformation of Assam Place and the project has achieved a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.

The main residential block is LIVE1 and is a brand new purpose built 18 floor tower. The complete development comprises 346 spacious, stylish rooms with high specification facilities including lounges with panoramic views over the London skyline and facilities include a café garden, two gyms and community study areas. All accommodation has now been fully let to Hult International Business School as their London International Campus.
