Revo Gold Award wins for intu Watford and intu Lakeside
Waterman are delighted that two intu retail projects took home Revo Gold awards at Wednesday’s gala dinner, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The event saw intu Watford scoop the ‘Re:new’ award, whilst intu Lakeside The Quay picked up the ‘Re:lax’ award.
Revo’s annual awards recognise the greatest examples of development, investment and asset management in the diverse retail property and placemaking sector across five categories: Re:fresh, Re:generate, Re:lax, Re:purpose and Re:new. Their Annual Dinner celebrates the people and businesses who have successfully transitioned from traditional retail units to the ground-breaking, mixed-use schemes available today.
Re:new – intu Watford
The exciting £178m redevelopment and extension of intu Watford created a single 1.4m ft² retail and leisure destination for the people of Watford and surrounding areas. The scheme, designed by Leslie Jones Architects, is formed of three separate blocks linked with a new feature roof and incorporates retail units and department stores, 11 restaurants and nine-screen cinema in addition to the original market hall, multi-storey car park and distinct YMCA tower. Our structures and infrastructure & environment teams were appointed by intu to develop a full set of ER’s for the scheme and carry out a client-side monitoring role, geo-environmental services, archaeology, flood risk and drainage design.

Re:lax – intu Lakeside The Quay
intu Properties invested £72m to transform the leisure facility into a new 1.4m ft² state-of-the-art shopping centre which opened over the summer, creating one of the country’s most popular retail and leisure destinations. In addition to the significant overhaul to the main shopping facilities, a host of new restaurants and shopping brands have opened alongside a new 24-lane Hollywood Bowl bowling alley, American-style diner and bar, Nickelodeon-themed family entertainment centre, Puttshack mini golf and Flip Out trampolining facilities. A further £9m has been invested into the centre’s new food court. We were appointed to provide structural engineering services for the project, generating the client’s brief and employer’s requirements for the shell works. Image courtesy of 3DReid architects.
Congratulations to all involved in both schemes!
