About This Project

The 1,300 seat 9 screen cinema and Restaurant Units opened on November 2015 and has been a very successful addition to the Shopping Centre; a popular Retail / Leisure destination has been created.

The design and construction continued the Shopping Centre’s use of quality materials and construction to create a stunning destination for the 1.2 Million people catchment that it serves.

Rowney Sharman as Project Manager and Employers Agent, managed the team throughout the design, consents, procurement and construction stages of the scheme, working collaboratively alongside the Client and project team. This included working closely with the Cinema operator to agree and deliver the Developers shell specification to enable a fast track fit out of the Cinema demise.

Throughout the Project, Rowney Sharman managed all programme obligations and constraints and all parts of the development opened on a single scheme opening day with Cineworld pre-view of Hunger Games the target opening date.

The Scheme was constructed in a live retail environment such that works sequencing had to consider the safety and wellbeing of the public and minimise the impact on trade.
