A New Look For Lakeside
The Lakeside Shopping Centre, West Thurrock, Essex, and its adjoining retail park is one of the largest shopping areas in Europe. It has consistently won awards for customer service and boasts over 270 million visitors since it was opened in 1990. It is currently undergoing a £20 million refurbishment programme being carried out by a joint venture between Try Interiors and Ellmer Construction, with the contract for painting and decorating being awarded to S. Lucas Ltd. Work started in October 2002 and will carry on until April 2004, fitting in around the Centre's need to remain open for trading.
