Reading Gateway

The Reading Gateway scheme represents one of the largest projects we've undertaken in a few years. Not intimidated by the scale of the development we worked collaboratively with the main contractor Kier Construction (Thames Valley) and the sub-contractors to deliver the build to a high quality.

The overall scheme is a mixed use development comprising four phases; this phase includes a 120-bed Premier Inn hotel and attached Beefeater restaurant, a Costa Drive Thru Unit tucked into an under croft to the main hotel above, and a standalone Burger King Drive Thru.

Most notably the hotel is an SFS structure with integrated off-site bathroom pods on a reinforced concrete podium at first floor. We worked with the BIM model initially developed by the SFS sub-contractor Metek Plc to co-ordinate elements of the external façade, internal partitioning, services, prior to manufacture.

You can read about the retail elements of the scheme here, Trade City phase here, and the car showrooms here.
