Walker Simpson completes 'electrifying' project in Manchester

Walker Simpson Architects has completed this 35m-long, 33kV electricity substation, clad in Corten steel, close to Manchester’s Piccadilly station.

The scheme, in Travis Street, for United Utilities Electrical Services, features a series of staggered planes, which will be backlit at night.
