Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

131 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 2: Civil Structures Category 2: Civil Structures 2 Short description │New Passage / Arcade at Tilburg Railway Station Studies show that in the coming decennia Tilburg Central Station will have to deal with a growing number of passengers and trains. In order to handle this increasing mobility, the complete station, except from the monumental covering of the station with hyperbolic shells, will be subject to a facelift. With this facelift, Tilburg will get a central station with a front and back entrance, as well as an easily accessible platform due to wide stairways, elevators and escalators. A major part in this project is the construction of a new 40 m-wide passage/arcade. The lack of space, the presence of many cables and pipes, the pollution of soil and ground water and, not least, the client’s requirement that the disruption of the train traffic should be kept to an absolute minimum made this a very complex project. Oranjewoud conducted a study of possible structural concept and building methods which led to a preliminary design. After the definitive design Oranjewoud also completed the specifications for this project in December 2012. The open tender started in January 2013.
