When Banner Holdings was commissioned to provide Cinemas 13 and 14 at the Showcase Cinema in Reading, they sought out access professionals with whom they could work easily, and who could compliment their own standards of excellence. They found us. Archway Services has provided Banner Holdings with an effective access solution at the Showcase that doesn't interrupt the cinema's busy programme. So people can enjoy the films in peace, all building related vibration needs to stop at 11:30am each day. Working at speed is therefore essential - as are public safety and aesthetics. The superb German Layher Engineered Modular Scaffolding System has thus been chosen to provide access during the contract.
