Rushden Lakes development passes first phase

Work on phase one of the £140m Rushden Lakes development in the Nene Valley, Northamptonshire has been completed by CA Roofing Services, along with CA Group’s cladding division SCS.

The retail, leisure and tourism destination, when complete, will include a 14-screen cinema, cycle hire, indoor trampoline and climbing facility as well as restaurants and access to some of the UK’s biggest high street shopping brands.

Michael Cinnamond, divisional manager for SCS, explained: “The various buildings, which make up phase one of Rushden Lakes, showcase a range of different skills. From standard, pre fab boxes serving as boat houses and stores, which have been transformed by wooden cladding to match their lakeside surroundings, to high-end restaurant and cafe facilities which feature an abundance of glass, enabling diners to take in the view.”

The project features a range of specially fabricated PRIME rainscreen panels in multiple finishes including stonework and timber cladding. Designed by CA Group’s Rainscreen division, working closely with the project team, the panels give the development a unique appearance.
