ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2023

Project Detail

St Margaret’s Bus Station Redevelopment, Leicester

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2023 Finalist

The redeveloped St Margaret’s Bus Station replaced the previous 1980s station and is designed to be a catalyst for more development in that part of the city centre.

It is the first net zero carbon bus station in the UK and was carefully designed with a glazed concourse to maximise natural lighting and eaves to prevent overheating. The roof of the building houses 390 photovoltaic panels.

The project retained the existing steel frame from the previous bus station, reducing the need to waste materials and saved embodied carbon.

Project Overview

The new St Margaret’s Bus Station provides bus and coach passengers with modern facilities including more bays, a new café, modern toilets, real-time digital passenger information and space for 100 bicycles to be stored.

The new bus station is a showcase for Leicester City Council’s commitment to decarbonising public buildings and improving sustainable transport options.

Along with the construction of the bus station, work was also undertaken to improve cycle and pedestrian routes around this part of the city.
