Project Description

The Porter Building is a 10,700m2 (115,000 Sq ft) speculative development by a joint venture partnership of Landid and Brockton Capital. The Architect on the Project is TP Bennett. Planning permission was granted in October, 2016 and demolition of the existing building was completed in January 2017.  Local dignitaries visited the site after the demolition for a ground-breaking ceremony.

The Porter Building is due for completion in August 2017, ahead of the arrival of Crossrail in early 2019.

The building is adjacent to Slough train station providing direct access to London Paddington in 16 minutes and with the arrival of Crossrail in 2019 will have a direct journey time of 33 minutes to Bond Street or Farringdon in 36 minutes.

LT Scaffold started on site on the 4th of August, 2016.

From the beginning of the phase we were hit with logistical obstacles as the hoarding surrounding the jobs in some areas was only 1m away from the steel frame of the building, we always consider the health and safety of our employees and the public with the up-most priority. All materials had to be booked in with Bowmer’s logistic manager and were unloaded underneath the building and carried to the outside always ensuring regulations were met.

To make the building watertight during the adverse weather conditions LT Scaffold were instructed to erect a temporary roof structure which included an opening for the crane. A crash mat scaffold was also erected for the installation of the finished roof all the way to the atrium.
