Motts wins Grade I-listed Bristol station overhaul

Bristol Temple Meads masterplan

Mott MacDonald has been picked to deliver the masterplan for Bristol’s Temple Quarter development, including major works to the Grade I-listed Bristol Temple Meads station.

Together with architects Weston Williamson + Partners, Mott MacDonald will deliver plans for a 70ha mixed use development zone with 11,000 homes surrounding the Isambard Kingdom Brunel-designed station.

Works to the 19th century rail station will add capacity for an estimated 22M passengers each year by 2030, up from 10M today, and access to the station from the east of Bristol will be improved.

Early plans for the Temple Quarter development include a “potential underground station”, although a Weston Williamson + Partners spokesperson declined to provide details.

The Temple Quarter development also includes a £300M Bristol University campus, which received planning permission last week.

Mott MacDonald global cities lead and project director Clare Wildfire said: “We are delighted that our team has been selected to deliver such a transformational project for Bristol, its citizens and the region; it will establish a fitting gateway to Bristol and the wider west of England and transform Temple Quarter into a people-focused place with affordable, good quality homes and space for innovative businesses.”

Mott MacDonald is working with Weston Williamson + Partners architects, AWW Architects, Alan Baxter associates, GVA, Deloitte, Turley, TLT and Pragma to deliver the masterplan.

The consultancy team has been appointed on behalf of a strategic alliance of Bristol City Council, Network Rail, Homes England and West of England Combined Authority.
