Here + Now, Thames Valley Park, Reading

BauMont Real Estate

Thames Valley Park in Reading offers a combination of progressive international businesses and large open green spaces. The park, water meadows and the 80-acre waterside nature reserve was developed to create a natural flood plain to protect the commercial development, improve natural habitats and increase local biodiversity.

Our client, BauMont Real Estate, an independent real estate private equity investment firm, appointed TFT for Cost Consultancy and Project Management services on the refurbishment and CAT A fit-out of Building 4 of the former Microsoft Campus at the site.

The refurbishment featured a relatively light CAT A fit-out to the upper levels, with some retention of existing services, refurbishment of WC’s, showers, cores and the lifts, with a focus on an enhanced atrium/reception. There was also a CAT A+ fit-out of the ground floor areas which included the tea points, partitioning and the furniture.

Our team also worked on the external side of the building which included a new entrance canopy, the green spaces and terraces, as well as an outdoor cinema.

Moreover, the development was able to achieive an ‘Outstanding’ BREEAM and Fitwel certification, which were key drivers for this project.
