Professional services and engineering consultancy WSP in Manchester has been appointed by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and Stockport Council to take forward plans to redevelop the existing bus station at Daw Bank into a £41m Stockport Transport Interchange.

The company will conduct a feasibility study that draws together potential development opportunities which might be appropriate for construction in conjunction with the new interchange, with the aim of attracting more inward investment into Stockport.

WSP will provide a range of engineering design services including transportation and infrastructure, building services, structures, environmental and town planning, working alongside design architect BDP.

As part of the study, WSP will develop designs to incorporate a range of commercial prospects into the outline masterplan including a 150-unit residential block and a range of shared community services above the interchange.

This latest appointment is on the back of a number of high-profile project wins for WSP in Stockport, with the company providing a range of specialist services on major schemes including the A6 Corridor Masterplan; the Town Centre Public Realm Strategy; Stockport Station Masterplan and the South-East Manchester Multi Modal Strategy (SEMMMS).
