RMJM, an international architecture company, announced the creation of a Global Transportation Architecture Studio that will aim to expand work designing airports, railway stations, ferry piers and terminals, and transport hubs around the world.
The move follows the company’s recent move to streamline the business in the challenging economic climate by focusing on areas that are subject to massive government investment. A team of experts, including architects in RMJM’s New York office, will be pulled together from throughout the RMJM network to bid for large-scale projects.
Although RMJM already has considerable experience in the transportation sector, including the recent Dubai Metro Purple Line and Airport Express railway, the Circle Line in Singapore, and numerous new stations and refurbishments in Hong Kong, it has not previously exploited opportunities on a global scale.
The new studio will be managed from the company's Hong Kong office.
