The scheme includes a new three-storey life sciences building

Sheppard Robson has revealed plans for a series of buildings at a Berkshire science park.

The practice has lodged a detailed planning application for two new buildings and several refurbishments at Silwood Science Park, near Ascot.

The scheme would include a new three-storey life science centre, consisting of a series of offices and laboratories around a central atrium.

A new CLT cafe pavilion would be built at the centre of the complex if the scheme is approved

A single-storey pavilion cafe would also be built at the heart of the complex. The circular building would be built using cross-laminated timber and a green roof to blend in with the surrounding landscape.

Six 1980s buildings will be refurbished and fitted with new timber cladding

The proposals also include the refurbishment of six two-storey 1980s buildings to provide modern laboratory and work space, with new timber cladding being installed.

Meanwhile, work on a delayed mixed-use scheme designed by Studio Egret West has finally started in nearby Maidenhead.

The six-block, 429-home scheme was first approved for planning three years ago but was held up by funding issues.

Called the Landing, the job is being developed by Hub and backed by Norwegian investment group Smedvig.
