Cambridge South Station

Working in close collaboration with multidisciplinary engineers Arcadis and for the end Client, Network Rail, fereday pollard have had an overarching design role in this brand new station to the south of Cambridge, providing vastly improved access to the cities Bio Medical Campus and a new vibrant gateway to the Astra Zenica plant.


Our involvement on the project began around 2016 when we supported Arcadis’s successful tendering team to provide GRIP Stage 2 and 3 designs and soon developed in to us providing architectural and landscape support in developing the design vision, establishing the project design principles, supporting the extensive stakeholder engagement process and providing the necessary information to support the project business case, funding and the consequent Transport Works Act submission for this new station and its masterplan.

Having developed and promoted the drive for a carbon neutral and landscape led solution which the Client and funders have supported, fereday pollard have developed the architectural and landscape designs for all stages of the project from concept design and engineering approvals to detailed design and now, on site construction, in effect from GRIP Stages 4 to 8. Sustainability has been a key part of the design process and seen us drive a very green, BREEAM Excellent accredited station which integrates biodiversity net-gain goals, onsite renewables and sustainable materials. The design is likely to have the largest and most sustainable, biodiverse station roof in the UK.
