Welcome to Reading

Known for its thriving economy and dynamic business community, Reading is home to a number of major international firms, particularly in the technology and finance sectors, and is consistently ranked as one of the United Kingdom’s top business locations.

Established in 1936 as a small architectural practice, our Reading office has grown to over 100 planners and designers. We service a wide range of residential, mixed-use, retail, strategic land, and commercial projects of various types and scales, including regeneration and placemaking opportunities.

Reading is a city that takes pride in its cultural heritage, and we take pride in our city. From playing a key role in securing an investment to revitalize the beloved Hexagon Theatre into a multi-function community hub that meets the to helping develop Reading FC’s new training academy at Bearwood Park, we’re committed preserving and enhancing Reading and its surrounds. We also worked on the development of Cine Valley, a new television and film studio complex at Thames Valley Science Park, which will transform the local area, creating new jobs and opportunities, and place the Thames Valley at the forefront of the UK's film and television industry.
