Warrrington Town Centre Design Guide
TEP was appointed by Warrington Borough Council to produce a Public Realm Strategy and Design Guide for Warrington Town Centre including outline designs for a number of key streets.
The strategy develops a framework for consistent public realm improvements to create a high quality, legible and coherent public realm with a distinct identity. A vision was developed along with strategic objectives providing best practice guidance.
The strategy identifies character areas and street types in the town centre and includes detailed guidance on design, materials, implementation, management and maintenance with specific products selected for elements such as surfacing, lighting, street furniture and tree planting. Detailed layouts and visualisations were provided for each street type.
The commission included concept designs to RIBA Stage C for key streets in the town centre including Bridge Street, a key retail street and gateway to the town centre and the main focus of nightlife, and the route from Warrington Bank Quay Station.
Architects Buttress assisted in the designs and also contributed to the Palmyra Quarter Vision Statement, which provided further details of proposals for the Cultural Quarter of the town centre.
