The architecture in Bracknell town centre has long been plagued by its post-war dull, bland, grey reputation. With very little large scale development since the 1950s, the area was screaming out for investment and for an injection of life and love that the shopping experience now brings. The resulting one million square foot retail park, developed over the last three years at a cost of £240 million, was officially opened on 7 September 2017.
A true central focal point within this next generation of shopping and leisure experiences in Bracknell town centre is an 800 metre expanse of Mobilane WallPlanter. This has created a stunning tapestry along the car park and walkways, providing both beauty and function, shielding an otherwise bland car park façade whilst also allowing unhindered ventilation.
Constructed of stainless steel troughs and planted with Mobilane Green Screens, a 200 metre LivePanel wall guides shoppers along the thoroughfare and offers an extra natural aspect within the confines of a shopping mall, peppered with semi-mature trees. This continues the green commitment around the centre and along The Avenue, the main thoroughfare within the shopping zone. The LivePanel feature is a superb accompaniment to the WallPlanter and runs alongside the new Marks and Spencer store, opened since July 2017.
The WallPlanter and LivePanel were expertly installed by Hedera Screens.
Its modernity and elegance is enhanced by Mobilane green systems. This majestic green transformation is such an important development in the region, creating a sustainable, natural environment within Bracknell town centre. Welcomed by retail visitors now returning to Bracknell, the completed scheme has been heralded by the Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, responsible for its regeneration.
