Redevelopment Project

Phase 1

Phase 2



As we look to see Reading transformed there has been a growing need for transformation in our buildings to give us a suitable base to reach out to Reading. We are setting out on a redevelopment journey to transform our site with new glass-filled, transparent, welcoming spaces, opening us up to face the community.

Construction is taking place in two phases. Phase one began in July 2020 and phase two will begin as soon as possible after this phase completes. On this website you can keep follow the story with regularly updated blog posts, read about the plans in detail and find out how you can get involved by giving to the project.
