AddlestOne Town Regeneration Scheme
This large scale regeneration project consists of providing Addlestone town centre with a vibrant new leisure and retail hub. The scheme is a collaboration between the developer Bouygues and the local council to provide the town with a best in class modern facility as the first stage to the towns regeneration plan.
Uses include; A 100 bed Premier Inn with restaurant facilities, 20-30,000 sqft food store, 190 apartments, a 6-8 screen cinema, in excess of 200,000sqft of retail and leisure space including gymnasiums and multiple food and beverage in all. Two multilevel car parks are included within the development service the East and West of the site. The local council will aquire a portion of the properties to sell as affordable housing.
The scheme Masterplan centres around a central CHP district heating plant designed to provide the council with a steady source of income as well as providing the residents and retailers with competitive energy efficient heating and hot water. This central provision will provide the sites low/zero carbon, BREEAM Excellent/CODE-FSH 4 and building regulation compliance as well as being capable of providing heat to a number of further developments planned in the local area. The scheme is a Masterplan that extends its current boundaries.
As well as district heating, water and gas the site also requires an electrical upgrade providing circa 4MW of power distributed around the site which has to be carefully coordinated with the existing local services and the site varied usage. This has also been balanced against the necessary fire safety back up provision required for the car park ventilation and emergency evacuation.
Sustainability is a central focus to the scheme and the local council. This does not mean a focus on green technologies but a vision to provide a development which will promote ongoing investment and funding for the local community, which will last and remain valid to its community.
The project has been designed to provide a robust yet sympathetic structure for Addlestone’s continued development.
