Parsons Brinckerhoff is proud to partner with clients to develop transit facilities that create a sense of awe upon arrival and meet engineering and architectural challenges with solutions that result in safe, secure, and continuous passenger activity.
Architectural excellence is achieved through benches, canopies, lighting, railings, pathways, site layout, landscaping, and colors. The latest building envelope technology optimizes thermal, acoustic, solar, and lighting performance. Façade engineering offers innovative design solutions for both new and refurbished facilities. Experience in transit-oriented development aids clients in creating vibrant, livable communities centered on transit, and developing transportation infrastructure that is truly sustainable. We address the broad issues of what a given site allows and what regional design themes encourage.
Parsons Brinckerhoff introduces sustainability into transit facilities by installing solar-powered units with photovoltaic panels and using fuel cells for efficient power production with less pollution, natural lighting to complement or replace electric lighting, natural ventilation to lower energy consumption, rainwater collection and reuse to conserve water, and LED signals and fluorescent lighting to conserve energy.
Parsons Brinckerhoff creates visualizations, 3-D models, and virtual reality environments that are accurate down to the smallest engineering detail. Our approach addresses a client’s unique technical requirements while incorporating the human factors that enable a facility to serve its users effectively.
