INK were appointed by Kier for this 216,000 sq ft new build office development located in the heart of Reading City centre. The building includes car parking at lower ground and ground level and 10 floors for tenant occupation. The building is the first of three phases with which INK are involved, and will be the largest office building in Reading to date. This site was restricted by the proximity of large diameter sewers. INK negotiated, successfully, with Thames Water to divert a storm water sewer beneath the building which allowed the footprint to be increased which resulted in a substantial gain of net internal area. INK subsequently led the design team through the planning process and secured consent for the enlarged building. INK then lead all technical discussions with Yell.com which resulted in a pre-let of 66% of the available space.
