A station is the showpiece of a city or town. Stations play an important role in a city or region because of their accessibility and because they are often located in the town center. A station is a place where travelers, transporters and commercial facilities come together. Stations should therefore be welcoming: a place where people feel safe and comfortable, whether they are travelling or spending some time there. Royal HaskoningDHV is specialized in station development and other places where people congregate.
NEW BUILDINGS AND IMPROVEMENTS TO STATIONS
Stations move with the market. Current requirements can be incorporated into the development and design of a new station. For existing stations, new buildings or improvements are necessary to be able to respond to the changing needs of managers, visitors and the surroundings. Every day our consultants address challenges like: how can I design a station that is attractive, easy to navigate and accessible? How can I make passenger waiting times more pleasant? How can I ensure that passengers get from A to B easily? How can I ensure that commercial facilities are properly utilised?
Together with you, we will explore the opportunities and take it a step further. We advise clients with questions about:
- Wayfinding: How will visitors find their way to a lift or bus platform?
- Transfer solutions: Do stairways have sufficient capacity for the large volumes of passengers arriving on the platform at the same time?
- Experience and safety: Do passengers feel safe when they’re waiting for the last train on a dark night?
- Parking solutions: Is there enough parking space for all the passengers’ vehicles and bicycles and will the spatial quality be preserved with the parking solution on offer?
