Festival Place was part of a three-year town centre redevelopment project for clients Grosvenor Estates. The scheme consisted of a two-storey shopping and leisure area, a further three storeys of car park, a new bus station, nightclub, 18 restaurants and a ten-screen cinema as well as £10m worth of refurbishment to the existing shopping malls and leisure centre.

Lakesmere was contracted by Laing O'Rourke to deliver the roof and wall packages that includes Kalzip standing seam roofing, Wards composite panels and specialist fabrications,

As the existing shopping centre remained operational throughout, the project presented a number of logistical challenges, including the need to ensure the safety of the public at all times. As the Lakesmere team was working on a number of different installations in a wide variety of locations around this major project, the close good management and collaboration with other trades working on site was vital to the schemes safe and successful delivery.
