Colchester and East Essex Co-operative Society asked us to propose a strategy to maximise the value of two redundant retail buildings in the heart of Colchester’s town centre.

Our proposals dealt sympathetically with constraints such as the remains of a Roman road beneath part of the proposed new building. We were able to create 40,000 sq ft of new retail space behind an original façade, plus a separate 20,000 sq ft investment.
