Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center Named APWA 2015 Public Works Project of the Year

Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC)

The Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center was recently named a 2015 Public Works Project of the Year by the American Public Works Association (APWA).

“The APWA Public Works Projects of the Year awards are presented annually to promote excellence in the management and administration of public works projects, recognizing the alliance between the managing agency, contractor, consultant and their cooperative achievements.”

“The Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) is the first LEED Platinum-designed transit station in the world, and is a significant vision of public transportation infrastructure. Located in the heart of Orange County, next to the world-class Honda Center and Angel Stadium of Anaheim, ARTIC is a 120-foot tall, 67,000-square-foot transportation hub and mixed-use activity center.”

ARTIC BIM“Though ARTIC’s 67,000 square-foot terminal resembles a grand 19th century rail station, the catenary curving structure’s design and construction was anything but antiquated. The project team collaborated using multiple BIM models during the submittal process, including models for the structural steel, curtain wall, and diamond-shaped ETFE roof that reduced these systems to the simplest geographic elements.”

“Through this cutting-edge virtual collaboration process, ARTIC’s project team was able to precisely design and coordinate the structural steel, two complex hanging curtain wall systems and the ETFE components prior to fabrication and field installation that would  normally require field verification dimensions.”

HOK provided architecture, interior design, master planning and urban design services. Parsons Brinckerhoff was the project manager and served as the rail and civil engineer. Other consultants include Thornton Tomasetti as structural engineer, Buro Happold as MEP and enclosure engineering, SWA as landscape designer, and Clark Construction as general contractor.
