Corstorphine + Wright appointed to New Bridgwater Leisure Development

National architectural practice, Corstorphine + Wright has been appointed by Sedgemoor District Council to design a brand new, cinema-led leisure development.

Located on a 2.5 acre site on Mount Street in Bridgwater town centre, the development has outline consent in place for the delivery of a 40,000 sq ft leisure complex anchored by a six screen cinema.

The development will include four ground floor restaurant units and associated leisure facilities. Around 115 surface car parking spaces will also be provided as part of the development.

Situated within the town centre boundary, the new leisure complex forms part of a wider regeneration and redevelopment initiative that has already seen the building of a new primary school and an agreement with a third party retailer to develop a food store.

Simon Crosby, Corstorphine + Wright, said:

“This is a really important project for Sedgemoor District Council and will be one of the largest schemes they have delivered.  This development forms a key part of the wider regeneration of the area and we are now looking forward to working with the rest of the project team in assisting the council in realising their vision.”

Corstorphine + Wright is part of the professional multi-disciplinary team assembled by Sedgemoor District Council for this project with other parties including: Enbourne Project and Development Management which is providing project management services; Aecom which is acting as M&E, civils and structure and cost consultants; and Montagu Evans providing development consultancy, leasing and planning advice.

Doug Bamsey, Sedgemoor District Council, said:

“This is a hugely significant and exciting project for us and represents a major investment in Bridgwater town centre. Working collaboratively with Corstorphine + Wright and the wider design team, will contribute to our long-term vision to regenerate and re-position the town centre whilst providing links to the historic dock area.”

A leading national architectural practice with offices in Warwick, Birmingham, London, Manchester, Leeds, Dublin, Canterbury and Glasgow, Corstorphine + Wright marries 40 years of professional experience with cutting edge technologies to produce design solutions that enhance the built environment, transform cities and unite communities.
