PTE wins Basildon town centre job

Day 01
  • Comment

Pollard Thomas Edwards (PTE) has won a council-run competition for a new leisure building in Basildon town centre, including a 10-screen cinema 

The East Square development will also include six restaurants, as well as overhauling the surrounding public space, which is near to the Grade II-listed Brook House designed by Basil Spence and Anthony Davies.

Carl Vann, partner at PTE, said: ’Regenerating East Square and introducing new uses will create the outward ripple effect intended by the council to raise the game for Basildon town centre.

’We want to tap into the rich heritage of the Festival of Britain-inspired context and add new buildings which respect this, but elevate it for the 21st Century.’ 

Alan Ball, Basildon Council’s chair of the regeneration and environment committee, said: ’This development will boost the local economy and provide new jobs for local people. We want East Square to be a destination of choice rather than convenience.’
