Appointed by the Consortium of Bloor Homes, Bovis Homes and Linden Homes, F3 acted as Project Manager and Cost Consultant to provide site wide and off-site infrastructure works and utilities on the project, Shinfield West, Reading.
Once a contractor was appointed for the infrastructure contract, F3 acted as Contract Administrator and Quantity Surveyor.
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.
Soon after the Consortium had obtained planning permission, F3 was appointed and 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 provided:
- 1,200 new homes
- one health centre
- one primary school
