Modular Apartments – Herschel Street, Slough
Bowman Riley’s team has been appointed to provide architecture and the role of principal designer on a major eight storey modular residential scheme in Herschel Street, Slough working for the construction company, Mid Group on behalf of Click Properties.
The landmark development will provide 238 high-quality new homes for first-time buyers, families and professionals using the latest offsite technology working alongside Premier Modular.
The Herschel Street development will feature studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments with a number of eighth-floor penthouses. There will also be a number of apartments classed as affordable homes. The construction will take place off-site, with the modules delivered to the site, before being craned into place for installation.
The off-site building methods employed will enable installation in only 10 weeks. Work is due to start on site in late 2017 with the first new homes handing over in 2019.
The high specification apartments will help to meet the increased 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 Crossrail is due to arrive in the town in 2019.
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 modular design expertise combined with a strong track record in the delivery of residential schemes will contribute towards the successful completion of this major scheme.”
