the new train station at hassocks has been design by bpr architects with the modular principles initially conceived by network rail. we were asked to replace the existing 1970’s ‘clasp’ station building with a new station building to meet the modern requirements of the train operating company, passengers and the local community. this brand new, much awaited station building opened in july 2013 and has been built as part of the department for transport’s national station improvement rogramme (nsip). it provides the locals with a contemporary and spacious booking hall area and step free access to all station’s modern facilities. 

steve cowell has recently been interviewed by rail construction news and an article will be included within the december 2015 edition.

bpr architects supported c2c rail in the development of a new concept for their booking hall and station refurbishment projects. our concept for the smart station brings together passenger services that are built into a co-ordinated wall, branded to suit the train operating company. the open ticket desk is designed to integrate with the smart wall, and provide a welcoming service desk that offers a friendly and supportive customer service. thorpe bay has been delivered to set an example and test the concept before it is implemented across the c2c network. the project has received significant support from passengers and staff since it opened in june 2012.
