  • Client: University of Reading
  • Main Contractor: Morgan Sindall


  • 594 Cluster Flat Bedrooms
  • 300 Town House Bedrooms
  • 94 Kitchens
  • Bathroom Vanity Units


Links were chosen by one of the UK’s largest construction companies, Morgan Sindall to install almost 900 bedrooms and 94 kitchens on behalf of the University of Reading.

The university boasts over 4,000 bedrooms and the new halls of residence provides the students with contemporary, high quality accommodation. The project was coordinated over multiple buildings and included cluster flats and town houses. Links were also appointed to install the resident tutor flats, vanity units, JCR rooms and communal areas incorporating aspects of mechanical and electrical works.

Links used their experience to create a modern twist on a traditional theme in the bedrooms by bringing the light ferrara oak furniture to life using bright vibrant colours. Quality was the focus throughout the project, the combination of high gloss kitchen units complimented by Corian solid surface worktops produced fabulous results.
