John Reid & Sons Ltd (REIDsteel) has launched new development plans. We’re aiming to move to a new state-of-the-art facility after outgrowing our existing home of more than 50 years in Christchurch.

The proposal is that up to 220 new homes be built on our site in Reid Street after we leave for our new headquarters elsewhere within the borough.

We have commenced consultation about our proposals for housing on the site in Reid Street and intend to lodge an outline planning application by the end of the year.

We’re holding a public exhibition for local residents, businesses and the community from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday 4th October in the community room at Christchurch fire station, Fairmile Road, Christchurch.

A flagship hospitality centre with steelwork designed, manufactured and supplied by REIDsteel has officially opened at the iconic Thruxton Motorsports Circuit.

Motor racing legends Nigel Mansell and Murray Walker performed the honours during Thruxton’s 50th anniversary celebrations over a weekend in early June.

The £1.5m hospitality centre at Andover in Hampshire includes a restaurant, bar, exhibition gallery, function rooms, hospitality suites, catering facilities, viewing terraces and a balcony.

Its innovative design also includes a grand atrium and entrance lobby to reflect the dynamism of motorsport and Thruxton’s rich heritage.

We designed, manufactured and supplied all of the steelwork, cladding and glazing for the modern, two-storey building alongside local contractor Mata Construction.

It is one of many cutting-edge arenas and stadiums we have designed and manufactured both at home and abroad, including football grounds and sports centres.

The project architect was the Chapman Partnership, which specialises in the motorsport and automotive, leisure and entertainment industries.

Construction started on the 1,415 m2 complex in August 2017.  It […]

John Reid & Sons Ltd (REIDsteel) has continued its support for Twynham School and The Grange School through its renewed sponsorship of the Young Chamber programme.

“Young Chamber is one of the programmes we are working with to address this, now.

“Both The Grange and Twynham schools have a great ethos and we are delighted to be supporting them through the Young Chamber for a second year.”
