tamar bridge

hmad|architects won a limited competition to design a structure for the gateway between Cornwall and Devon. Our proposal was a striking waveform canopy which pays tribute to both Plymouth and the estuary's maritime history as well as providing functional shelter to the toll plaza.

Technical requirements of the project required specialised servicing and involved construction works within a complex live environment. The design team's approach minimised disruption to traffic and operations without compromising health and safety duties. We worked closely with a team of specialist consultants and contractors during the detail design and construction to ensure the satisfactory delivery of this high profile project.
