1:50 PM Innovation in Architectural Designs to Achieve Cost Effective and Long Lasting Project Outcomes

Large scale transport projects are built with the aim of providing long term benefits to commuters. It is a considerable investment that requires engineering expertise to build high quality rail and stations to ensure their longevity and therefore promise of economic return. Architects are faced with the challenge of designing stations that provide longevity and practically against a backdrop of cost constraints. As such, it becomes a fine balance between ensuring quality and delivering the project within budget.

  • How to balance quality with cost and which elements cannot be compromised to ensure longevity and practicality of stations
  • Examples of common materials used that contribute to the success of previous stations
  • Analysing key mistakes made with station design and worked strategies to overcome miscalculations

3:40 PM Looking At The Concept Of ‘Developing Stations As Destinations’

What makes a station a place where people would deliberately travel to and experience? In this discussion, Mark will lead the discussion on what makes a station an attraction for tourists.
