Marks Barfield shortlisted for 'landmark' bus station

  • Comment
Marks Barfield has been named on a six-strong shortlist in the competition to design a new 'landmark' bus station in Chatham, Kent.

Contest organiser Medway Council has also selected Space Craft Architects, Birmingham-based D5 Architects, NPS Property Consultants, Aedas, and Arup to battle it out for the prize project.

The 'innovative' £4 million bus facility will sit on the site of the town's Sir John Hawkins Way car park, and the winning proposal will link to the existing pedestrianised High Street and rail station.

As well as producing proposals for a series of 'dynamic' bus stands, entrants were asked to design the customer waiting and circulation spaces as well as external bus parking and manoeuvring areas.

Part of the ongoing £20 million Medway Waterfront Regeneration Strategy, the scheme is billed as key to the improvement of the region's transport infrastructure, which will need to handle an expected 20 per cent rise in population over the next two decades.

The competition winner is expected to be announced next week.
