Farrells, the architect-planners who have previously drawn up proposals for the HS2 interchanges at Crewe and Old Oak Common, have completed a strategic study setting out key design principles for a new hub station in the East Midlands for HS2 phase 2.
The objective of this new hub will be to maximise the economic growth potential for the East Midlands, linking the station with surrounding areas and cities.
Commissioned by East Midlands Councils, and with engineering support from Peter Brett Associates, the report sets out a world class level of ambition for the station design, and guides future HS2 driven growth.
Infrastructure partner at Farrells, Neil Bennett said:
“We are delighted to have won this commission and continue to bring our knowledge and experience of designing high speed stations throughout the world back to the UK.”
