“By providing social and inspirational environments with a real focus on community, Spaces is redefining what it means to be ‘at work’.
“As the home of a diverse range of leading companies, with a particularly thriving creative industry, Reading is widely considered to be the economic capital of the Thames Valley region. This makes it the perfect fit for our new Spaces hub.”
