The Clock Tower Retail Park in Chelmsford has recently opened its doors bringing new stores along with the restructure of the city’s most iconic landmark; the Britvic Clock Tower. With the help of Wetherby’s versatile silicone render, the renowned clock tower has been reconstructed with a new contemporary look.
