Restoring a railway, retaining its character

  • Project: Tynemouth Station
  • Client: Station Developments Ltd
  • Contractor: Mansell Construction Services Ltd
  • Scale: 50,000sqft
  • Value: £4m

This Grade II* listed building is on the English Heritage Buildings at Risk register due to the condition of its canopies. Lathams carried out architectural and conservation services in support of a Sea Change grant application, and from there was chosen to provide full architectural services for the whole project.

The proposal was part of a joint bid with Hodder & Partners, who were responsible for the new-build element of the project. Our remit was to repair as found, so we could retain as much material as possible on site. The project included complex iron work, establishing an appropriate colour scheme, and reglazing the concourse to restore it to its former glory.
