Project Description

Accrington has seen the development of Lancashire County Council’s first station project based upon the sustainable ideology and will be the test ground for future projects of this scale and nature. The result has attracted interest within Network Rail, the DfT and TOC’s and numerous industry awards.

The design incorporates the wide use of reclaimed local limestone, timber in cladding, glulam beams & glazing, natural insulation and recycled metals to work towards a zero carbon build.

Renewable technologies are incorporated to compliment the passive design solutions being employed to reduce the heating and cooling loads through consideration of the building orientation and form.
