Context

A £240 million redevelopment project in Bracknell designed to reinvigorate the town centre included the Lexicon, a one million sq ft shopping centre.

A crucial element of the scheme was the regeneration of Charles Square, a prestigious pedestrianised space within the project. This area required a robust, high-quality drainage solution that would stand the test of time.

Product supplied

Marshalls Drexus Slot Drain Duo was specified for the project. The mild steel slots collect water into the system's concrete drainage channels. This means that paving used in the scheme can butt up to the drainage slots for a discreet, aesthetic finish that blends seamlessly into the hardscape. Drexus Slot Drain Duo is easy to install and durable. It provides a highly efficient and discreet water management solution.

Where a grated system was preferred, Marshalls Drexus 100 was implemented. This linear drainage system features a stainless steel grate and a concrete channel, providing a cost-effective and equally robust solution in this high footfall space.

Marshalls provided crucial design support, site visits and logistical planning support over the course of three years. In addition, one representative dealt with all departments across Advance Construction making communication quicker and more effective to assist and help with the scheme.

Outcome

An attractive covered street now features large units housing a broad range of big name retailers. By creating an enjoyable shopping, visiting and family experience, this urban regeneration project has encouraged significantly more visitors to the area and stimulated further investment. 

Marshalls provided a highly efficient and robust water management system capable of withstanding the high volume of surface water, and also the heavy vehicle overrun on site for many years to come. The solution has helped to create a better space that people will enjoy for decades to come.
