Dattner Architects among top 10 of Transit Sector Design Giants
February 10, 2016
Dattner Architects was recognized this year in Building Design + Construction’s 2015 Transit Sector Giants report as # 8 in the country for transit sector projects, which ranks the leading firms in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry for building-type revenue, green building work, building information modeling (BIM) revenue, number of green accredited professionals, and more.
Dattner Architects has a respected transportation, infrastructure, and urban planning portfolio. We have designed subway and rail stations, airport facilities, maintenance garages, and associated spaces for personnel. Dattner Architects has worked with transit agency clients continuously for the past 20 years, designing a range of projects that have become some of the most admired transit facilities in the City—secure facilities, service buildings, and new stations. We have completed several station renovations, including 59th Street Columbus Circle, Seven Stations on the Brighton Line as well as the rehabilitation of the 72nd Street Station in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, to name a few.
In 2015, we completed 7 Line Extension / 34th Street-Hudson Yards station, a project that has been said to exemplify how modern transit facilities can be functional, aesthetically pleasing and integrated into the fabric of the communities that we serve. At the station opening in September, MTA President Horodniceanu said, “This new, modern station will be the lifeline of Manhattan’s newest neighborhood. It will make it possible for thousands of residents, employees and visitors to get to Hudson Yard’s (Neighborhood) easily and quickly. Without the extension, this new development would not have been possible.”
