Aviation + Transport

High quality transport infrastructure is a critical key to the economic, social and environmental sustainability of our cities.

With increased intercity competition, our airports and major railway stations are the important tourism and economic gateways to our cities.

City planning strategies that prioritise urban intensification at Transit Oriented Developments (TODs) also highlight the economic and social significance of our suburban stations, light rail and associated infrastructure.

Architectus understands how important integrated aviation and transport infrastructure is to the economic, social and environmental sustainability of our cities and has built specialist architecture and urban design teams with extensive technical expertise in aviation, heavy rail, light rail and bussing operations and their interconnectivity with pedestrian, cycle and private vehicle movements.

Architectus bring a collaborative approach to these projects, working closely with clients and specialist consultants to research issues and to develop innovative, efficient and functional and economic solutions to complex issues. In transport operations, speed, economy, reliability, sustainability, safety and security are essential performance parameters, technology is rapidly advancing, and the focus on the passenger experience is paramount.

In aviation we have a long history of landside and airside design services as diverse as control towers to passenger terminals, from flight catering kitchens to aviation training and many associated facilities. We have worked closely with Melbourne Airport, particularly on the delivery of the major T2 International Terminal expansion.

We have provided architectural design, urban design and city planning services on major rail infrastructure projects, including the Gold Coast’s new light rail system G:link.

Gold Coast City and New Lynn TOD development in Auckland demonstrate how good public transport design can provide a better quality life with less dependence on the car.
