Phase one of Rushden Lakes development complete

CA Roofing Services, along with CA Group’s specialist cladding division SCS, has announced completion of work on phase one of the £140m Rushden Lakes development in the Nene Valley, Northamptonshire. When complete, the retail, leisure and tourism destination will include a 14-screen cinema, cycle hire, indoor trampoline and climbing facility as well as restaurants and access to some of the UK’s biggest high street shopping brands.

Michael Cinnamond, divisional manager for SCS, explained: “The various buildings which make up phase one of Rushden Lakes showcase a range of different skills: from standard, pre fab boxes serving as boat houses and stores which have been transformed by wooden cladding to match their lakeside surroundings, to high-end restaurant and cafe facilities which feature an abundance of glass, enabling diners to take in the view.”

The project features a range of specially fabricated PRIME rainscreen panels in multiple finishes including stonework and timber cladding. Designed by CA Group’s Rainscreen division, working closely with the project team, the company says that the panels give the development a unique appearance.

Steven Forster, sales and estimating director for CA Roofing Services, concluded: “With such a high profile project, involving so many stakeholders, there were a number of priorities.

“These included ensuring any bespoke design requirements made by the tenants were met, creating a high-end finish with attention to detail at every step and keeping to the strict time scale which had been allocated. Working closely with the team at SCS, I am very pleased to say that we were able to tick all of these boxes and the end product looks fantastic.”
