As part of the franchise commitment, First Keolis are carrying out a programme of station refurbishment works across the TPE network.
Strzala Architects were commissioned as Architects and Lead Consultants for a number of stations including Barrow, Birchwood, Stalybridge and Windermere. The majority of works are building and platform related with Strzala Architects taking the opportunity to investigate added value beyond the franchise commitments.
One example of this is at Stalybridge, where the Strzala Architects proposed scheme to replace the ticket office building has lead to a jointly funded project between First Keolis and Transport for Greater Manchester to replace rather than refurbish the ticket office building.
