Bradford Interchange is a transport hub consisting of rail and bus stations located in the centre of the city. However, the current facility is generally in a poor state of repair and the links between the Interchange and the city are unsatisfactory. The Interchange has poor connectivity with the surrounding employment areas and a modest, low quality main entrance.
SLC Property undertook an optioneering exercise to determine a preferred option for a new entrance. Working with project partners, SYSTRA, we prepared a Strategic Outline Business Case (SOBC) that will be used to apply for the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF). The brief for the scheme included the following requirements and outputs:
- A new high-profile pedestrian access
- A modern public transport facility
- Enhanced visibility and pedestrian connectivity to the Interchange Station
- A new station façade and a variety of retail units to enhance the customer experience
- Creation of a gateway to the city from the station
- The Land & Consents Strategy is a detailed review of the land and consents processes required for the successful delivery of the scheme. The document builds on work undertaken during the pre-feasibility stage and in preparing a TCF Strategic Assessment in defining a preferred option for the scheme.
- We produced an initial high-level retail strategy and provided property advice.
- Formal advice in accordance with the RICS Valuation – Global Standards Incorporating IVSC International Valuation Standards.
