New Forth Bridge Commission

 

We are thrilled to announce that 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.

 

The Priory Church & Arts Venue

On Tuesday 4th November WT Architecture presented outline designs for a new arts centre at the Priory Church, South Queensferry. This follows on from the first community workshop we hosted at the start of August, which sought the views of community members and parishioners on providing new facilities for the Church and wider community.

Thank you to all those who have contributed so far, and we look forward to working along side the Priory Church as the project moves forwards
