Forth Bridge Experience

WT Architecture have been appointed by Network Rail as Architects on the team to develop detailed design proposals for the Forth Bridge Experience. Our team will be led by world-renowned Engineers, Arup, with The Paul Hogarth Company as Landscape Architects, and Turner & Townsend as Quantity Surveyors.

Last year we worked with Network Rail to develop the brief for new visitor facilities and access to the Forth Bridge, coming up with some very broad concept proposals, an example of which is featured in the image above. We are delighted to receive this new commission, which will see us take the project through to Planning and Listed Building application stage. The Forth Bridge Experience will consist of a Visitor Centre in North Queensferry beneath the Fife Tower, with hoist access to the top of the Bridge, and a Reception Centre for a Bridge Walk from South Queensferry.

In North Queensferry, a dedicated visitor centre provides space for events, educational exhibitions, and eating, drinking and shopping facilities. This culimniates in a trip in a lift up to a viewing platform right at the top of the north tower. On the south side, a smaller hub building will allow thrillseekers to embark on pre-booked bridge walks, crossing out over the water and scaling the bridge's towers.
