Having successfully completed work on phase one of the £140m Rushden Lakes development in the Nene Valley, Northamptonshire, CA Roofing Services, along with CA Group's specialist cladding division SCS, has confirmed that it has been awarded phase two of the development.
The second phase of work consists of an additional single storey terrace, bringing the total number of terraces, featuring some of UK’s biggest high street shopping brands, to four. In addition, phase two will include a large leisure block, which will be split into a Cineworld 14-screen iMax cinema complex and a selection of restaurants serving a range of premium food and beverages.
The development will feature a combination of CA Group’s Twin-Therm® built-up roof and wall system on the terrace and the company’s River-Therm® secret fix roof system, on the cinema complex, the latter being specified due to the roof pitch being as low as two degrees, necessitating the need for a standing seam system.
Shop fronts will be clad in a combination of stone rainscreen from Shackerley (Holdings) Group Limited, sourced in Italy and fabricated in Chorley, Lancashire, and CA Group’s Prime SFX Rainscreen System, which will be modified to various depths and widths in order to create a visually stunning 3D effect.
At a height of 28 meters, the cinema complex towers above the other buildings on the development. In order to maximise its aesthetic appeal, the upper section of the building will be clad in mirror-polished, stainless steel panels, designed to reflect the sky.
Work on the project is expected to complete in August 2018.
