Overview Expand

Prater began work on site in 2015 and the project team’s collaborative working ethos has played a fundamental role in the success of the roofing and façade packages. The extensive and long-awaited £200 million redevelopment programme includes the construction of a 580,000 sq ft retail and leisure site in the north of Bracknell Town Centre.

Having worked together previously on a number of high profile projects, Mace appointed Prater to deliver the external envelope for all 8 buildings at Bracknell Town Centre – each one its own individual project.

With the sheer size and complexity of the work faced, we brought real value to the project. As one of the few specialist contractors in the UK with an extensive internal design resource - we were able to provide in excess of 20 designers to work on Bracknell Town Centre.

With each of the buildings featuring individually bespoke façade and roofing finishes, a collaborative approach was required to avoid issues and maintain the tight build programme. From the outset, we worked closely with Mace and key supply chain partners such as Bailey for the Fenwick panel system, BTS for rainscreen panels and RW Simon for louvres.

The Bracknell project is an exemplar project in Prater’s portfolio – not only does it demonstrate the specialist contractor’s capability and technical excellence across multiple disciplines but it highlights what can be achieved through collaborative partnerships with 8 new buildings delivered in just over 18 months.
