Following the buy-out of the Dolphin Shopping Centre last year, the new owner Legal and General Property (L&G) has already begun making future plans to regenerate Dorset’s largest indoor shopping centre.

Over the past few months shoppers would have noticed that the Dolphin Centre’s branding has been revamped and new signage has been introduced internally.

Work on the large external signs at the entrance of the centre has just received planning permission and the installation will begin shortly, in the hope the project will be completed by the end of summer.

The signage not only includes the new branding but also coincides with L&G’s sustainability ethos. Once all in place, the new LED signs will provide a 68 per cent saving on energy usage compared to the original five foot, 58 watt tube lit signs.

The Dolphin Shopping Centre has dedicated its management team to identify where energy can be saved and new initiatives such as this are being installed to improve the centre’s environmental performance.

John Grinnell, centre manager of the Dolphin Shopping Centre, said: “As a large shopping destination in the hub of Poole’s town centre we are continually committed to improving the centre’s environmental performance and to identify where changes can be made to control the environmental impact of its activities.

“The new branding and signs are a welcome addition to the centre and we look forward to L&G’s future plans.”
