Reading Station Heritage Building

Project Details:

  • Project Name: Reading Station Heritage Building
  • Client: Network Rail
  • Value: £703,000
  • Location: Reading, Berkshire

Project Description

As part of a Grade II Listed heritage building, the Three Guineas pub was refurbished whilst the single storey adjacent building (housing the station’s operational staff, kitchen and toilets) was demolished. Temporary accommodation in the form of office space, general storage and catering facilities was created to last until 2014. This will accommodate those people located on the first floor of the heritage building and in other parts of Reading station. Access was created from the kitchen through to the pub enabling food to be served to customers. Male and female public toilets were relocated to the east end of the building which originally housed the storage area. The WC layout at the station was designed to reflect the current facilities at the Three Guineas Pub.


"The project team today received an ‘Extra Mile Award’ for very successfully ensuring that the new facilities were completed on time and to the standard demanded by the end users.  This would obviously not have been possible without your full engagement and determination to deliver and I would therefore like to share this award with you and again pass on my thanks to you and your team."
