Norton Canes, M6 Toll

The project was won as part of a limited competition entered on behalf of Roadchef. The competition involved the master-planning of the site and the design of the amenity building and hotel within it. Wilson Mason was then appointed by Midland Expressway Ltd to act as designer and construction consultant throughout the building process.

The amenity building features a three-dimensional curved sculpted roof and a tension rod suspension system to limit structural member sizes and roof depth to the amenity building’s main dining hall. The design delivered a highly daylit environment with a clear view across the landscaped site, setting a new standard to motorway service areas.
