we are glad to announce that the following projects have been highly commended at the 2014 national rail awards:
hassocks station for southern railways in the medium station of the year category, and
thorpe bay station for c2c in the small station of the year category.
steve cowell has recently been interviewed by rail construction news and an article
will be included within the december 2015 edition.
at thorpe bay bpr architects supported c2c rail in the development of a new concept for their booking hall and station refurbishment projects. our concept for the smart station brings together passenger services that are built into a co-ordinated wall, branded to suit the train operating company. the open ticket desk is designed to integrate with the smart wall, and provide a welcoming service desk that offers a friendly and supportive customer service. thorpe bay has been delivered to set an example and test the concept before it is implemented across the c2c network. the project has received significant support from passengers and staff since it opened in june 2012.
