The Gate Church & Community Centre, Reading

We recently provided our AsBuilt drawings for the structural and civil design of this 2/3 storey church and community centre ready for the project to be handed over to the client.

The design by project lead CPL Architects included associated car parking, landscaping, and external works. Because of the location of the development, our design for the drainage system incorporated an existing Thames Water Flood alleviation system.

Large open spaces and significant amounts of glazing are featured in the design, with a steel structural frame and coloured cladding adding to the overall aesthetic. A Natural stone has been added to elevation walls, creating an impactful look.
