Parkwest Train Station, Dublin


Located within Park West business park on the Dublin-Cork rail line, the project was developed as a joint venture between Harcourt Developments, Dublin City Council and Iarnród Éireann.

The project consisted of the construction of platforms, the main station building and concourse and a plaza. The concourse, measuring 500m2 is constructed in structural steel, spanning both the existing Dublin-Cork rail line and the proposed future (KRP) tracks between the main stair cores which are constructed in reinforced concrete.

The steel structure was assembled offline and installed during two track possessions using a 500 tonne mobile crane. The concourse is located approximately 5m above the existing track levels. The concourse roof canopy features a spaceframe structure, providing the most visually striking feature of the station.

The spaceframe roof was fully assembled offline and installed during a single track possession using a 500 tonne mobile crane. The concourse incorporates ticketing and retail facilities, automated ticket vending machines and ticket validation barriers.
