Crawley recreates town centre around Morrisons and bronze clad car park

folder_openCivic & Public Sector, Construction, Residential & Commercial

A stunning new Morrisons supermarket atop a two-storey car park with bronze coloured cladding is the centrepiece of a major redevelopment of Crawley town centre.

The 75,000 sq ft superstore, 110 bed Travelodge hotel, 500 space car park and four restaurants made up phase one of Crawley Borough Council’s Town Centre North masterplan on the former Sussex House site at the northern end of the High Street.

The scheme designed by architects Lyons Sleeman Hoare was developed by Land Securities and St James’s Investments. McLaren Construction and Warefence appointed to install the car park steel mesh and cladding supplied by perimeter fencing manufacturer Zaun.

Zaun supplied Duo6 panels and posts, a fencing system based on a twin wire design, consisting of two horizontal 6mm wires resistance welded on either side of 5mm vertical wires.

The result was a rigid perimeter fence that offered a high degree of vandal resistance and an extremely high level of through visibility. The mesh also offered the versatility of integrating into a ‘green screen’.

The major upgrade of the town centre included £750,000 of improvements to the public highway with pedestrianised areas, improved street lighting, and new LED traffic signals at the junction of Pegler Way and The Boulevard.

A further £3.2m of improvement work to Queens Square, the heart of the town centre, will be complete in early 2017. An additional £18m of capital has also been secured from the Local Enterprise Partnership for transport and infrastructure improvements.
