Crawford Partnership receives planning permission for a mixed use development in Reading
Planning permission has recently been granted on a ‘Brownfield’ site near Reading for a development of 65 residential units, a doctor’s surgery and retail unit, all of which are grouped around a new central avenue.
The new buildings, which will be constructed using timber framed off site techniques, incorporate sustainable design features such as sedum roofs and ground source heat pumps. They are predominantly finished in brickwork, with the uppermost floors clad in cedar boarding.
The scheme was rated ‘Excellent’ by ECO homes and the surrounding areas have been designed in conjunction with award winning landscape designer Paul Cooper.
