Lipton Plant Architects are thrilled to be at the heart of designing and developing new electrical vehicle charging hubs as part of the new electric vehicle revolution.  Working with BE.EV,  a new electric vehicle charging infrastructure provider in Greater Manchester ​appointed by Transport for Greater Manchester, we will be providing full architectural services to drive, expand and maintain the city-region’s public electric vehicle (EV) charging network.  With BE.EV, we hope to make Greater Manchester truly EV-friendly and sustainable.

Our Car-Parks will be pivotal in the future expansion plans for the NorthWest and allow EV drivers to charge their vehicles in as little as 5 minutes in a lush green ‘Car-Park’ environment.  Lipton Plants proposal will complement smaller charge-while-you-park mini hubs at retailers, workplaces, leisure centres and more.

Much of the charging infrastructure will have to be built to support a fast transition to electric. Lipton Plant Architects have taken the opportunity to reimagine a common feature of the built environment and transform urban spaces quite dramatically for the better. With electric vehicles there is no longer the risk of spilling petrol or diesel, the ground will no longer be polluted, there are no requirements for underground tanks only clean ground that is suitable for trees and roots, we can now make our charging stations green Car-Parks.
