About this event

The project was undertaken for Cheshire West and Chester Council and provides a contemporary public realm plaza together with a fully covered concourse. The project was fully designed with Mott MacDonald providing an integrated design team.

The project was constructed by Graham Construction and it is located just to the North West of the city centre and is directly linked to the main road network.

The structure featured timber laminated beams together with a green roof which had an interesting geometrical format arranged around a horseshoe which accommodated the majority of the bus stands. Two 'pods' were integrated into the design. These provide retail accommodation together with operational facilities.

The curved roof was founded on piles taken through to the underlying sandstone bedrock with the interchange incorporating a high standard of finishes which matched those in the city. There was an extensive retaining wall constructed adjacent to St Oswald's Way which is a heavily trafficked route around the city and this utilised pre-cast construction to ensure that the construction could proceed to strict timescales.
