To facilitate a new 225,000 square foot extension to the INTU Lakeside shopping centre in Essex, Barhale were required to divert existing utility services away from the new building footprint by carrying out extensive open cut excavation.

The new extension will act as a focal point for the shopping centre, housing numerous leisure facilities including; a bowling alley, various food and drink outlets and an interactive family entertainment centre.

There were three existing services, which clashed with the footprint of
the new building:
• Potable water main
• Gas main
• HV electricity ducting
