The site is build on land of the old Bell Farm under the site name Eldridge Park. The sites comprises of 128 homes.

When appointed to carry out the detailed developer lighting design we liaised with Wokingham Borough Councils street lighting engineer to agree a specification for the works, one of our experienced lighting design engineers commenced the design work.
