Client: Shinfield Studios Ltd
Architect: Scott Brownrigg
Type of Project: Major Industrial (film studios) & associated services
Contract Type: JCT Design & Build
Project Value: £Confidential


Continuing on from the phenomenal success of delivering Shinfield Studios initial Lower Field Phase in just 8 months, Curo Construction have continued seamlessly into the Main Phase part of the development.

Started in December 2021 the initial part of the project is due to be completed in the first half of 2022, this 1,500,000 sq ft development includes a large scale cut and fill exercise, retaining walls and ground stabilisation, site wide drainage and infrastructure, 2 film studios, a workshop, multi—storey car park and external works.

At its peak the team are expecting 280 lorry movements and approximately 550 tons of cement per day and will have up to 120 operatives on-site during the envelope and fit out stage. Multiple site entrances have been created ensuring that the site can cope with the volume of lorry movements and not disrupt the local community.

Curo Construction have again worked closely with the Client and Design Teams to firm up programme, design and procurement strategies to release phases of work and secure materials as cost plans are finalised. It is this collaborative approach that will ensure the whole development beyond Phase 2B remains on track to be completed by the end of 2023 providing the UK with one of the worlds finest Film and TV production centres – Cine Valley.
