Adaptive reuse of a former warehouse to develop a new multimodal station in downtown Raleigh
As the existing Amtrak Station in Raleigh, North Carolina was unable to meet the requirements of various area transportation initiatives, Raleigh Union Station (RUS) was conceived as a major multi-modal transportation center. The Federal Railroad Administration, Amtrak, NCDOT, GoTriangle Transit, and the City of Raleigh developed this project to support the Southeast High Speed Rail Corridor, long-distance and intra-state Amtrak Service, and regional and local bus service.
The project consisted of track improvements and converting a former industrial building to a new station that includes an underground concourse, center-island platforms, parking, and a civic plaza. Due to our history of successfully delivering North Carolina’s rail projects, we were selected by NCDOT to carry the project through NEPA and conceptual design. We led environmental studies, conducted topographic surveys, led public and stakeholder engagement, and prepared the conceptual design for the onsite and offsite track improvements which include a 10,000-foot-long siding.
RUS was one of NCDOT’s last American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funded projects to enter the NEPA phase. Due to our strict adherence to the project schedule, our work enabled NCDOT to meet the strict program delivery timelines for all their ARRA-funded projects.
