Speedy building boost

I’ve posted a number of stories referring to the house building boom and that is just one reason why Speedy believes its new regional service centre in Reading will be kept busy. 

The 18,000 sq ft facility is more than double the size of the previous site and its opening coincides with considerable building activity in the town. This includes a 735-home Huntley Wharf development and projects at Station Hill, the Thames Quarter and Vastern Road, where proposals have been made for almost 2,000 homes.  

 As well as small tools, fencing and compact plant, the new Reading centre has sufficient space to offer Speedy’s full range of lifting and survey equipment for the first time in this location.
