New Street Progresses

Fabric Architecture are working alongside contractors Mace Group, to deliver a fully-integrated fabric lining inside Birmingham New Street station’s new atrium and concourse. This large-scale interior project includes a bespoke steel truss framework and over 600sqm of tensile cladding, combining solid and mesh fabrics.

Currently underway is the installation of the fabric collar which sweeps around the upper retail level and forms teardrop openings among the steel ‘buttresses’. The use of tensile fabric allows a sleek and uninterrupted interface between the concrete bulkhead and the ETFE roof above.

The full story about our fully-integrated fabric lining will shortly be available alongside other completed projects in our Projects section…
