careyjones worked alongside Clugston Construction to design and build a bright, striking and eye catching station to improve rail visitors first impressions of Chesterfield. The overall appearance, detail, and functional requirement took equal precedence in the design – resulting in a fusion of contemporary and traditional ideas which tie in with the existing environment.
The demolition and build was carried out in phases to maintain full operation of the station. This also included the refurbishment of platform canopies and copings, disabled facilities including a lift to the underpass and generally upgrading station facilities
The design incorporated many of Railtrack’s new features and concepts, and became a benchmark design model rolled out on other station replacement projects.
