New archaeological centre set to start on site in weeks after nod from Berkshire planners
John McAslan & Partners’ new archaeological research centre for the British Museum is about to start rising from the ground after getting the nod from Berkshire planners.
The new building will provide 15,500sq m of space for the museum to “store, study, share and conserve” its archaeological collection, and will be built next to the University of Reading’s Thames Valley Science Park in Shinfield.
It will house important objects and works of art from the British Museum’s research collection, speciﬁcally archaeological material such as sculptures, mosaics and historic casts.
