Keighley Bus Station, West Yorkshire

JPG were appointed to advise on this new bus station which is a modern fusion of glass and Yorkshire stone on a gently sloping site in Keighley town centre.

The 70m long building serves 15 bus stands, the front half of the building being a single sloping open space facing the bus stands and the rear section containing office and toilet accommodation.

The roof is divided into three concave elements along its length supported on exposed steel inverted “V” and girder lattice trusses. The trusses are supported on perimeter steel columns holding the glazed and stone clad facades.

The foundations are simple concrete pad bases and reinforced concrete ground beams supporting the perimeter masonry and glazing. The foundations were designed and spaced in the middle of the building to bridge a major telecom fibre optic cable running through the site.
