About ONE Station Hill, Garrard St. Reading

The Station Hill project includes delivery of a 275,000 sq ft office building called ONE Station Hill, a new public square and a link bridge providing level access from the train station through to the town centre.
Our client is Lincoln MGT, a joint venture between Lincoln Property Company and MGT Investment Management. 
ONE Station Hill, with the town centre now visible from the train station for the first time in generations following the demolition of the Garrard Street car park, was regarded by many as an outdated and unpleasant ‘welcome’ to Reading. 
Our contract forms part of a wider £750m scheme which will provide up to 625,000 sq ft best-in-class office space, 1,300 private and affordable homes, and 95,000 sq ft of new lifestyle-led retail and leisure space, including potential for a 200-bed hotel and later living accommodation, and central two-acre piazza.

The visitors will experience: -

A Health and Safety briefing, as though it’s your first day on site as one of the workforce.

A short presentation showing the development from demolition through to construction with an explanation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) 3D visuals, and careers in construction.

An overview of how BIM and 3D modelling have been fundamental to the development of the various project designs. As the designs have been refined the models have increasingly been used to verify coordination using clash detection.  The models have so far also been used to assist in the planning of logistics, the build sequence, verification of quantities for sustainability and costing purposes, and how they have started to be used in the collation of asset data to accompany the Operational & Maintenance manuals in accordance with the Clients requirements.

A guided tour of the key areas of the development, with detail of the trades and activities that were undertaken to bring the building to this stage from design manager, construction managers to mechanical and electrical specialists through from structural, brick and block work, plasterboard and future trades for dry-lining and the finishing trades for floors, decorating and carpentry.

An incite into the ongoing maintenance and operational management of the building. SRM will demonstrate that the construction industry employ people of all levels and abilities with many opportunities to learn new skills in construction and have potential to progress and work in specialist trade areas and into management roles.
