F3GROUP was appointed by the Consortium of Bloor Homes, Bovis Homes and Linden Homes as Project Manager and Cost Consultant to manage site-wide and off-site infrastructure works and utilities on the Shinfield West project in Reading.
Appointed in early 2016, soon after the Consortium had obtained planning permission, F3GROUP began work by preparing a project implementation plan for the development, including a procurement strategy for the works, both of which were to be in compliance with the Consortium Agreement.
The scheme provides:
- 1,200 new homes
- One health centre
- One primary school
The land was originally owned by the University of Reading to provide 1,350 homes as part of the South of M4 strategic development location identified in Wokingham Borough Council’s core strategy.
F3GROUP act as the contract administrator and quantity surveyor for site-wide infrastructure works.
