Bracknell Town Centre Regeneration
Bracknell Regeneration Partnership (BRP) and Bracknell Forest Council (BFC) have today announced that Mace, a British-owned international construction and consultancy company, has been appointed as the main contractor on the £200 million regeneration of Bracknell town centre.
Construction workers will be on site in late-March, carrying out preparatory earthworks, before foundations are started in late spring, with steel work beginning in June 2015. The building is programmed to allow the first retailers to start fit out work in August 2016, in order for shops, restaurants and the cinema to open in the spring of 2017.
BRP also announced that it has successfully secured popular Asian cuisine restaurant chain, Wagamama, to join the town centre leisure line up. Due to open its doors in spring 2017, Wagamama has taken 3,200 sq ft space next to the new 12-screen Cineworld multiplex.
The new development in the north of Bracknell Town Centre will comprise 580,000 sq ft of new retail and leisure space, supported by a 1,300-space multi-storey car park and landscaped public spaces.
