Prater has been appointed by Sir Robert McAlpine to deliver a roofing package to Victoria Square in Woking. Initially appointed to install the façade at the new Hilton Hotel, its remit has been expanded to incorporate a flat roofing package to be delivered to the development.
Part of a £500m regeneration project, Victoria Square is being developed as part of a joint venture between Woking Borough Council and Moyallen. It will contain more than 125,000 square feet of retail space – including a large Marks & Spencer store – 429 apartments, a multi-storey car park, a medical centre and two public plazas.
Featuring a multiple-tiered roof, Prater has collaborated with Sir Robert McAlpine to find the best solutions for each of the individual areas. As such, Prater will be delivering inverted roofing with high-performance insulation, green roofs, decking and ballasts.
Being a town centre development, Prater is working closely with its supply chain and Woking Borough Council to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum for pedestrians, adopting a ‘just in time’ approach to deliveries and implementing a robust logistics plan.
“We are delighted to have secured additional packages as part of the regeneration of Woking Town Centre,” said Mike Goddard, Pre-Contracts Manager at Prater. “Having already been appointed by Sir Robert McAlpine to deliver the façade to the new Hilton Hotel, our experience in flat roofing ensures that we can continue our long-standing relationship and provide the highest quality of delivery to the development.”
Prater is due to demobilise from the site in November 2019 with Victoria Square set for completion in 2020.
