We have won the contract to build a new mixed-use scheme in Egham, Surrey. The £60 million Egham Gateway project will see the construction of over 100 new homes, as well as new student accommodation, retail units and a cinema.
The project, formally known as Egham Gateway West, is being managed by development and placemaking group Places for People on behalf of Runnymede Borough Council.
Working with the development partner, we will ensure that Egham’s heritage as a historic town will be preserved by sensitively redeveloping the existing site.
The development will deliver 1,300sqm of new retail space as well as a new, high-quality public realm connecting the development to the rest of the town centre.
Mary Parsons, Group Director, Placemaking & Regeneration for Places for People said:
“The revitalisation of Egham Town Centre is the exciting next phase of Runnymede Borough Council’s multi-million pound investment plans into their communities.
"As the council’s development partner, we are delighted to be working with GRAHAM on this ambitious project which will deliver much needed new homes, leisure, retail and public realm to transform this part of the town centre”
Alex Williams, Corporate Head of Assets and Regeneration at Runnymede Borough Council, said:
“Our plans for Egham will further revitalise the town, embedding it as an attractive option for companies seeking to relocate to the Borough.
"Runnymede is already a sought-after location for company headquarters and retail stores, and our focus on Egham’s town centre is intended to give the area a competitive advantage through creating great living and socialising options for workers. Importantly Egham Gateway will also give local people and students greater choice in their day to day lives.”
Guy Salazar-Lewis, Contracts Manager at GRAHAM said:
“This project will bring much needed housing, business and a new square and improvements to Egham, including new shops, restaurants and student accommodation. We look forward to working closely with Places for People and Runnymede Borough Council to deliver a thriving new quarter for the local area.”
We were the lead contractor on the design and build of Magna Carta Park, a new build student accommodation scheme in Runnymede which completed in 2018, accommodating almost 500 Royal Holloway, University of London students.
