Edinburgh Gateway Station

The Edinburgh Gateway Station is part of the East Coast Mainline route from Edinburgh to Aberdeen. We acted as Lead Designer on the design and build contract, which involved managing the architectural input and specialist designers as well as designing the stations infrastructure – associated with Station buildings and platforms.

The Edinburgh Gateway Station provides transport links from rail to tram and onto Edinburgh Airport. Network Rail’s aspiration for the project was to create a quality airport transport hub – becoming an international gateway to the City of Edinburgh.

The project involved the development of the new station, concourse, and bridge – linked to a vertical transfer building for tram transport links, feature wall and underpass for pedestrians and cyclists below the main artery road into the City. As part of our involvement we provided multi-discipline services, including; mechanical, electrical, public health, and communications designs as well as our civil and structural design expertise.

In addition we also provided BiM modelling for the project to a “near” level 2 standard as part of our combined design and build services. The model was used by all disciplines and shared with all design teams, including the architect as well the contractor and client.
