BDP has been appointed to the Indian Ministry of Railways’ framework to prepare masterplans and concept designs for station projects across the country.
Our appointment, with local partner DDF Consultants, is in the highest category which includes major projects of a complex nature as well as landmark stations of strategic importance. BDP is one of just three consultants in this category.
The ministry is planning to redevelop 400 railway stations across India and invited global applications through its Special Purpose Vehicle, IRSDC (Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Limited).
Francis Glare, chair of BDP’s India studio said: “I’m delighted that the IRSDC has recognised BDP’s transport interchange design and TOD expertise and I look forward to our India and UK studios collaborating with the IRSDC on sites across India.”
Peter Jenkins, head of transport sector said: “This is a very satisfying result for us, testament to the efforts made by the team during a grueling selection process. We look forward to working on projects where we can combine our UK station design experience with the local knowledge of our colleagues in Delhi.”
