Seeking to mitigate costs, generate third party income and support the local community, SPACE-2 are currently working alongside the new owners of Aldermaston Park while the site awaits re-development. The site comprises Aldermaston Manor, a Grade II* listed Victorian country house and former hotel, the award winning Portland House made up of 85, 00 sq ft of offices, church lodges, extensive parklands, protected woodlands and lakes. With a pre development window of 12 to 18 months, SPACE-2 have offered the space as build space, filming/photographic locations and unit base parking with the potential for future production offices to be based on site.
Aldermaston Park is well located for productions based out of Pinewood and Shepperton and has already been home to a large feature film due for release next year and a high end TV drama currently filming for Channel 4. We are currently working with one of the largest feature films to be shot this year in the UK who have plans to base there for 20 weeks and convert the offices into multiple sets. The managed services SPACE-2 are able to provide to both our client and customer have been pivotal in the productions decision to film and base at Aldermaston Park for such a long period of time. SPACE-2 have engaged local businesses, employing previous landscaping, engineering and security contractors to work alongside us on the filming activities referring business to the local pub, hotels and B&B’s.
