Chester Bus Interchange

Project Overview

The requirement was to provide glazing to this one-storey bus interchange in the centre of Chester. The interchange was designed by the architect in a horseshoe shape and our curtain walling was to follow this line.

This £10 million bus station forms an important visual element to the historic City Gateway site. Creating and delivering a high quality Public Realm forecourt area and concourse to the Bus Interchange, this presents a strong civic face to the roundabout and approach.

The facility includes drop-off, layover, pick-up and interchange space for the majority of bus and Park & Ride services in the city, 13 bus stands, cycle stands provision, taxi stands, a fully accessible contemporary Bus Interchange, a covered concourse for waiting, a drivers rest area, a coffee shop pod, a newsagents, an information desk and a full changing places facility.

Chester Bus Interchange They said...

Chester Bus Station was a fantastic project alongside a great team from Grahams. We worked together to deliver a challenging project – the bonus was having such a large laydown area for our materials – doesn’t happen very often! The finished project looks great – a number of our staff live in the area and we are all proud of what has been delivered for the community.

Michael Green, Managing Director

Our design team enjoyed being part of this scheme. A lot of the design element incorporated bespoke engineered bracketry, curved-on-plan glazing and integrated mesh panelling. Automatic doors were required to provide entry and exit from the interchange onto the public transport – critically these needed to be designed to incorporate an induction loop so that the doors could only open once a bus had pulled up to the stop. Regular design team meetings were held with the architect and the main contractor to ensure that the finished scheme met the architectural vision. Everyone involved in the project is extremely pleased with the end result.
