Aspire Apartments – Herschel Street, Slough

Mid Group

Slough, Berkshire

Bowman Riley is providing architecture and the role of principal designer on Aspire Apartments, a major eight-storey residential scheme on Herschel Street in Slough working for the construction company, Mid Group on behalf of Click Properties.

The Aspire landmark development will provide 238 high-quality new homes for first-time buyers, families and professionals close to the high street in Slough’s town centre and train station with a 16-minute commutable time to London.

The high specification apartments will help to meet the increasing demand for homes in Slough and contribute towards the ongoing renaissance of the town.  Slough is currently benefiting from £600m Heart of Slough regeneration fund and one of the UK’s fastest-growing regeneration hotspots and has been ranked as the youngest town in the UK by the Centre of Cities.

The Herschel Street development will feature studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments with a number of eighth-floor penthouses.  15% of the apartments classed as affordable or shared ownership homes.

Bowman Riley is supporting The Mid Group as the principal contractor for the construction of the development. Mid Group’s approach is to use offsite and modern methods of construction, wherever appropriate and BIM for all of their projects.  The development started on site in 2020 using a SFC light gauge steelwork system, which speeds up the construction process and reduces time on site.

Andrew Shepherd, CEO at Mid Group said:

“We are delighted that Bowman Riley has come on board to deliver this prestigious development.  We are confident that their design expertise combined with a strong track record in the delivery of residential schemes will contribute towards the successful completion of this major scheme.”
