NORR’s Transportation Studio develops aviation, transit and multi-modal hub solutions for clients around the world. We understand the needs of government and private operations to maintain, upgrade and provide new transportation services and supporting infrastructure. Our design solutions are purpose-driven to build better, more efficient and environmentally-friendly transportation nodes that incorporate flexibility for future system expansion.
Integrated Designs for Aviation
NORR has proven expertise in all aspects of airport design, engineering and operations, from curb side to airside. Our global team has designed and managed complex projects for the transportation industry, including terminal buildings, parkades, maintenance and training hangars, de-icing facilities, runways, taxiways and aprons. Our design work extends to master planning, interior reconfigurations, lounges and retail buildouts. NORR has been involved with prestigious projects located worldwide, beginning in 1964 with Canada’s largest airport, Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Managing the Complexity of Transit Projects
Public transit, including subway and light rail transit, is vital to a healthy sustainable city. At NORR, we work collaboratively with all levels of government and private operators to provide planning and programs that increase capacity, eliminate spatial and technical limitations on balance with financial realities. We have developed a framework for detailed project phasing and staging strategies, for design implementation through to construction that has the least impact on the system and traffic flow.
Multimodal Transit Hubs
All levels of government are looking to move people and goods through multimodal transit hubs providing more options, enhanced service and increased efficiencies. NORR has been at the forefront of planning, developing, and implementing projects that include regional transit, railway and, ferry terminals and border crossings. Our experience goes far beyond design and engineering. Today, the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, elimination of noise pollution and resolution of other environmental issues are all integral aspects of our work.
