Transport

We are architects, engineers, designers and urbanists.

Placemaking for a Modern World

We design at every scale and at every stage in the process of placemaking, from visioning to briefing, design, delivery and operation. The places we create are distinct; social, natural, useful and beautiful – a reflection of humanity.

The practice has grown to over 1,200 people operating from a collaborative network of global studios, all creative hubs connected to the cities and regions they serve.

BDP has an enviable track record of delivering innovative, sustainable projects in a number of sectors and for a diverse range of clients – both public and private, they include Google, AstraZeneca, Netflix, PwC, The Royal Albert Hall, IKEA, Berkeley Homes, Great Ormond Street Hospital and many more.

Our knowledge of transport projects covers the UK, Ireland, the Middle and Far East. We are inspired by a common approach that produces holistic high quality integrated transport solutions that meet the demands of 21st century travel.

Today’s modern transport networks form an integral part of developing new and existing urban masterplans involving a mixture of transport modes from rail and air to road or on foot. Our expertise ranges from the largest (site masterplans) to the smallest (passenger- focussed individual facilities). In the former category we have developed masterplans for transport sites which create commercial developments which integrate with award-winning interchange environments. At the most personal scale we have developed access for all facilities

which cater for the wide range of passenger needs. Our designs work between these extremes in scale to create interchange environments which coordinate site-planning for vehicular access and management of passenger flows under different operational situations to ensure safe and secure people handling.

The projects in this brochure illustrate BDP’s skills in bringing the various modes of transport together to create building solutions involving a mix of building typologies to create successful ‘places for people.’

Our aspiration is always to create world class, sustainably inspired buildings and passenger environments. We put passenger needs at the centre of the design to create a positive first and lasting impression of their journey.
Victoria Station, Manchester

Rail

BDP has over 20 years’ experience in designing a range of major rail projects. Many of the projects have wide ranging briefs encompassing planning and building design, earthwork infrastructure, landscape, interiors, signage, lighting and acoustics.

The types of project range from elevated transit systems, to both overground and underground rail lines and stations. Stations such as Nottingham and Piccadilly are recycling existing buildings, transforming them into modern connective transport hubs regenerating large urban areas.

Refurbishment of Manchester’s Victoria railway station, centred around the removal of a series of trainshed roofs which have been replaced with a 15,000 sqm ETFE-clad column free structure. A series of mezzanine floors have been introduced, holding various station facilities and improving connections.

Completion 2021

Glasgow Queen Street Station has been redeveloped to cater for longer, greener trains and increased passenger footfall. A fully glazed façade floods the station with daylight, while a dramatic roof form creates a memorable gateway to the city. The design places emphasis on the previously hidden Category A listed train shed, reinstating this fine Victorian structure as the heart of the station and creating an unprecedented contemporary connection between train and city.

This new Glasgow Queen Street, delivered as part of the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme, is a shining example of how we can modernise historic and iconic stations, offering greener transport hubs that are more attractive to commuter, business and leisure markets alike. This station led the city through industrialisation and it now stands out as an example of what we can achieve as we navigate our way towards net-zero.”

Aviation

The long term value and need for aviation is clear. Economies of countries depend on it and the movement of people around the world is unprecedented.

Using both natural and technological approaches for the creative use and reuse of energy and resource through design our aim is to create an enjoyable passenger experience that treads lightly on the planet.

BDP has wide ranging experience gained in the first instance at George Best Belfast City Airport over a 15 year period.

From designing international arrivals halls to masterplanning expansion of airports our work is planned for the next 30 years. This has been supplemented recently with new projects on the BAA Framework focused previously at Heathrow. The aim of the programme is to carry out transformational change to realise Heathrow’s vision to be a world-class airport and Europe’s hub of choice.

BDP developed a concept masterplan for the 1334 Ha campus. The landscape concept included ideas on use of vacant lands in initial phases of the airport developments, strategies for trees, planting palette, design of key landscape areas like forest park, plane spotting park and swale park, support functions, cargo village, visitor centre, real estate development and air side peripheral areas. The landscape guidelines define specific recommendations for hardscape, elements, planting, material and color based on usage and visibility.

We are designing nine underground stations for Dhaka Metro Line 5, which will cross the heart of the city from west to east. In collaboration with Nippon Koei, it is our first project in Bangladesh, and draws on our experience of designing significant transport projects such as Glasgow Queen Street Station and Whitechapel Station on the Elizabeth Line in London.

This station will be an interchange with existing lines and form the terminus of a new line. All activities within the station focus into the heart of the structure, the Garden Hall. This dramatic space features planted terraces running the full length of the site; all routes into and across the levels of the station pass through this space which will form the main identity of the building.
