New Student Accommodation in Reading

September 2011


Kendrick Halls Student Accommodation in Reading is now complete and has opened for the start of the 2011 academic term. The 604 bed development for UNITE Group PLC has been built in the heart of the Kendrick Conservation Area, adjacent to Reading University’s London Road Campus.

The design has overcome many challenging hurdles in its conception including stringent Planning requirements, numerous TPO trees on site which had to be retained, and the adjacency of the Kendrick Girls Secondary School and privately owned Victorian houses whose privacy and amenity had to be preserved.

The design won the support of both CABE & English Heritage at the Planning stage.

Built by Mansell Construction Ltd using a whole room modular construction the entire scheme was completed in 14 months.

The final product is a series of high quality buildings designed harmoniously with the environment. The deferential treatment of the elevations has created a scheme which is worthy of its location and reflects the high standards expected within a conservation area and of a high quality modern residential development.
