Time Square in Warrington’s Bridge Street Quarter is a £107 million retail and leisure-led development designed to enhance the existing town centre and welcome a diverse mix of leisure and retail facilities alongside a vibrant public square.

The initial masterplan and concept drawings for the street furniture were created by Gillespies in Leeds for the clients, Warrington Borough Council and Muse Developments. Marshalls assisted Gillespies with the design and detail development at RIBA stage 3 and 4.

Vinci were appointed as main contractor and Gillespies were keen to maintain Marshalls design support and expertise for the bespoke granite and timber furniture. Marshalls collaborated with Gillespies and Vinci where construction design drawings were developed, approved, manufactured and delivered.

Throughout the bespoke process Marshalls ensured complimentary design features were delivered across the bespoke street furniture components and the granite paving, providing a fluid and consistent feel.

A variety of unique, angular, modular granite planters with timber seating and standalone granite bench configurations were created for the scheme. Spanning the length of the development, the decorative multi-functional unit exudes personality, offering a distinctive look synonymous with the contemporary aesthetics of Time Square. Designed to complement the environment, the simple geometric surface detailing extends throughout the space.

Selected sections of the seating and planters have additional hardwood timber slats and granite coping sections with discreet recess channels allowing for the subtle integration of LED lighting. The seating elements are fronted with seamless granite hinged swing doors offering easy access to the services.

The Time Square welcomes an abundance of attractions, and business opportunities to residents of Warrington and beyond, with the street furniture elements providing a relaxing environment for visitors to sit and relax.
