Projex has started work on the £30m leisure phase of Rushden Lakes, the only development of its kind in Europe, where fashion meets lakeside restaurants and cafes and a world of outdoor discovery.
The retail element officially opened in July to much acclaim with a record 40,000 visitors in the first day.
Projex is providing full service project management, employer’s agent, cost consultancy and principal designer services to the scheme which will include a 14-screen cinema, nine restaurants and further recreational amenities such as a climbing arena, indoor golf, soft play and trampolining.
The company has been involved with the prestigious scheme, one of the UK’s biggest out of town developments, since its inception, working alongside client LXB and their wider development team.
Based on a 244-acre site, it aims to attract more than three million visitors a year once open. Only 30 acres will be built on and the majority of the site is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and RAMSAR designated nature reserve.
