Berkshire House Transformation
The project was Essential Living‘s first office-to-residential rented housing scheme. The plan was to transform Berkshire House, a 12-storey office building, into a residential tower with 68 units. These would range from studio apartments to two-bedroom units specifically designed for the private rented sector.
The Postbox on Queen Street, Maidenhead, was painted gold to celebrate Sophie Christiansen’s winning Paralympic performances in the 2012 London Olympic Games. The 24-year-old, who lives in Boyn Hill Road, won three equestrian gold medals at the Games with her horse Janeiro.
To complete the works for Berkshire House, Fannon Group had the challenge of relocating the postbox as part of the S278 works being completed on the high street.
