Project focus: Thames Valley Science Park.

Gateway Building to showcase the University of Reading

Working with Graham Construction, Doras Hardware supplied 220 doors sets with integrated access controls.

David Gilham, director of Thames Valley Science Park, said: “After years of careful planning it is exciting to see the Thames Valley Science Park coming to fruition. We are very happy with the completed ‘Gateway’ building and are proud to showcase this as our flagship development, which offers our tenants fantastic space and facilities.”

Any student accommodation needs a robust and functional profile we were tasked with providing lever handles , mechanical locking items , door controls and accessories that had style and also durability . We were able to dovetail with the access control system and supply complimentary items to enable that. Graham Construction’s London office director, Rob Joyce said: “The completion of the Gateway building marks an important first step towards the University of Reading’s long-term capital works programme. By working closely with the team and understanding their vision from the start, we have successfully delivered a new commercial building that meets the needs of small to medium-sized technology companies while supporting collaboration and continued learning.”
