The Future Works: the future work place?

The Future Works, Slough

A new speculative office development has just been unveiled in Slough, a town that has been enjoying a renaissance over the past few years. Property Week visits The Future Works to find out more.

“Don’t you think the Thames Valley is going to eat your breakfast?” someone from the audience asked representatives of west London boroughs during a panel discussion titled ‘West London: collaboration and the commercial story’. “More specifically,” he continued: “Are you worried about Slough?”

With impeccable timing, the day after the panel, U+I and AshbyCapital officially launched The Future Works, the first phase completed of a three-office-building speculative development next to Slough train station. The development is the latest evidence of regeneration in a town undergoing something of a renaissance at the moment, with British Airways just this week rumoured to be scoping the location for a potential new HQ.

Property Week visited the building just before it completed to catch up with Simon Hesketh from U+I and Peter Ferrari from AshbyCapital and find out whether their west London competitors really should be worried.
