This project is being carried out for PSP Bolton LLP, a joint venture between the Winston Group and Bolton Council.

Gateway to a key transport development

The offices will be built in a prime location as part of Transport for Greater Manchester’s new £48m Bolton Interchange master plan.

JM Architects’ design takes a five-storey brick-built form, which establishes a visual bookend to the streetscape while also acting as a focal point to the interchange, which incorporates a combined rail and bus station. Together, the projects will play a key role in the regeneration of Bolton.

The building has large floor-to-ceiling windows with brick side panels, which provide architectural links to the area’s industrial heritage. Floor to floor heights are 3.9m, which will provide the deep-plan offices with even distribution of light and a sense of wellbeing.

A roof terrace creates a pleasant environment on the flat roofs on the second and third floors, offering excellent views across the town.

The concrete floor beams are exposed, allowing maximum internal flexibility and space planning.

Commercial space on the ground floor allows retail use in the future, which will bring more footfall to the centre and improve the streetscape.
