Phase 2 - Festival Leisure Park, Basildon, Essex
Following the successful completion of the Nightclub/Play 360 redevelopment, Aviva asked Colman Architects to update and refresh the public realm which comprises the 1,000 space car park, cinema and restaurant malls. The scheme was presented to the tenants in June 2018 and works commenced on site in Spring 2019. The scheme included new lighting for the car park, re-asphalting and the creation of an events space at the front of the cinema and restaurant mall entrance. The glass canopies fronting onto the car park were renewed, the elevations refreshed and 'jumbrellas' installed. Within the cinema and restaurant malls, new ceilings, flooring and LED lighting have been installed and purpose designed spiral lights adding a unique feature to the public areas.

Emlyn Square, Newport, Wales
Newport City Council has given Planning approval to our design for Queensberry for the development of a new public square in the centre of Newport. Building on Newport’s regeneration initiatives the development in Commercial Street will create a new focal point in the city centre and a high profile approach to the Kingsway Shopping Centre. The hybrid application also provides Outline Consent for the creation of a signature building as part of the square development.
