Construction giant, Graham has secured a £60m contract to build a new mixed-use scheme in Egham, known as Egham Gateway
The Egham Gateway project will deliver over 100 new homes, along with retail units, student accommodation and a cinema.
Working with the development partner, Graham will ensure that Egham’s heritage as a historic town is preserved by sensitively redeveloping the existing site.
The Egham Gateway development will deliver 1,300 sqm of new retail space as well as new, high-quality public realm connecting the development to the rest of the town centre.
Revitalisation of Egham Town Centre
Mary Parsons, group director for placemaking & regeneration at 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, commented: “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, added: “This project will bring housing, business and a new square 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.”
