OpenBuildings Station Designer

Design, analyse, visualise and simulate Rail and Metro Stations

Multidiscipline Rail Station Design and Pedestrian Simulation

OpenBuildings Station Designer improves design quality by optimising the functional space layout of the station building and the path of travel for the pedestrian. Design, analyse, visualise and simulate rail and metro stations of any size, form, and complexity. Create pedestrian simulation scenarios to improve the quality of your station design and facility operations.

OpenBuildings Station Designer provides building information modelling (BIM) advancements so you can deliver station design projects faster and with greater confidence in your design, workflow, capabilities and deliverables.  Effectively communicate design intent and eliminate barriers between building disciplines and geographically distributed teams.

Pricing and Purchase

Analyse building system performance

Simulate real-world performance and evaluate building system performances so you can quickly discover the best design choices. Inform early design decisions with conceptual energy analysis that provides peak loads, annual energy calculations, energy consumptions, carbon emissions, and fuel costs.

Collaborate across multidiscipline teams

Includes tools for architectural, electrical, mechanical, and structural systems design in one application. Coordinate your designs better thanks to a common design environment and a streamlined workflow. Resolve clashes with built-in clash detection and share mark-ups of models and documentation across teams to reduce project errors.

Collaborate across multidiscipline teams
Design mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems

Design mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems

Design complex MEP systems. Model fully parametric air-handling, piping, and plumbing systems. Design lighting, power, fire-detection, and other electrical subsystems.

Design station building structures

Model steel, concrete, and timber structures from walls, foundations, and columns to other structural components. Produce plans, framing layouts, sections and elevations. Integrate with detailing applications, including Bentley’s ProStructures.

Design station building structures
Design stations and facilities

Design stations and facilities

Develop and design buildings and facilities of any size and complexity with comprehensive architectural capabilities. Produce coordinated architectural documentation directly from the building model. Create floor plans, sections, elevations and schedules for any architectural component.

Functional space layout

Use available catalog of functional space types that are specific to stations for layout and reporting. This will result in efficient space layout and analysis, which ensures that your facility meets the owner’s requirements.

Functional space layout
Furniture, fixtures and equipment

Furniture, fixtures and equipment

Utilise catalog of equipment for space planning, such as ticket kiosks, gate turnstiles, and passenger information displays.

Geographic coordination

Utilise geographic coordinate systems from OpenRail Designer and OpenRoads Designer to improve design coordination between the linear alignment of rail design and the vertical construction of the station building.

Geographic coordination
Pedestrian simulation

Pedestrian simulation

Create pedestrian simulation scenarios to improve the quality of design and facility operations. Experience improved design quality by optimising the functional space layout of the station building and the path of pedestrian movement.

Refine design alternatives

Iterate designs quickly by dynamically modelling or manipulating geometry. Discover more possibilities and explore a broad range of “what-if” alternatives in less time. Design with freedom and model anything of any form, size, and complexity without restrictions and limitations.
