Transportation design is a challenging architectural commission. It requires a detailed knowledge of and experience with the various processing components for vehicles, passengers and baggage combined with the ability to coordinate multiple disciplines on large consultant teams and the creative vision to transcend those functional and practical considerations. HOK Transportation’s experience in terminal design is second to none. We have designed over 50 new, expanded and renovated airport, rail and cruise and ferry passenger terminals around the world that are known throughout the transportation industry for their functional efficiency, passenger friendliness, security, cost-effective use of materials and structure, long-term flexibility and strong design imagery that is expressive of regional identity. HOK Transportation success is based on the following principles which guide our business approach: ▪▪
Identify and develop a series of objectives relating to design aesthetics, passenger service, capacity, growth, flexibility and revenue generation to drive the project and ensure that all key goals are achieved
Integrate the client and the consultant group into a single, effective planning and design team
Collaborate closely with the user groups that are involved as stakeholders in the process
Create significant civic gateways that are the first impression of the terminal’s community, providing a focal point for the travelling public and a source of civic pride

This will compliment existing transport links already servicing the area and, through its efficiency, hope to reduce car use amongst the visitors to Dublin Airport City.
Phase 1 and transport links are due to be put in place on the brownfields site by 2013, with completion scheduled for 2033. HOK was the lead consultant for this project undertaking the masterplan, urban design and landscape services. Arup Consulting engineers provided all engineering input and TPA all the town planning advice. Unveiled at a launch event in Dublin on Friday, April 25th by Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, the mixed-use 140-hectare Airport City will allow business travellers to get from arrivals to their desk in six minutes via a new automated people mover.
