Client

Bracknell Regeneration Partnership

PCE Ltd worked in co-operation with MACE, developing a hybrid design and build solution, principally using offsite engineered precast concrete components, to provide a solution for the five suspended level car park structure that would also incorporate an area of multi-level retail space at its front.

Known as the Lexicon, the town centre development has been undertaken by the Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, a joint venture between Legal and GeneralSchroders and Bracknell Forest Council to provide much needed extensive shopping, restaurant, entertainment and facilities.

Over 24,00m² of the GT units were deployed in order to minimise on-site construction times, reducing the depth of structure, number of erection lifts, and the amount of follow-on trades as no in-situ structural topping is required. The units arrived to site on a just-in-time basis with a factory applied anti slip finish.

Safety

PCE received the Team Safety Award at the Lexicon Bracknell town centre redevelopment. It was awarded to PCE in recognition for the high standards of safety set by the team. 

Quality

Factory engineered GT Flooring units manufactured with consistent non slip brush finish wearing surfaces compliment the overall high quality finishes obtained.
 

Speed

Hybrid Offsite manufactured structural frame designed using latest BIM technologies enabled a 40 week on site programme. Construction was quicker than a fully onsite build approach, resulting in less on site personnel and plant resources that would otherwise be required.

Value

Suspended car park decks fall in two directions enabled by stepped bearings in wall and beam corbels.
