For the past eight years LAB has been involved in master planning and design for the expansion of Union Station in Washington, D.C. This work has covered a broad range of activities, including the development of the master plan and design concepts, scheduling, and project management of numerous consultant teams.

The project includes full reconstruction of the rail infrastructure serving the station and development of three million square feet of air rights structures over the terminal.

Our work has included:

  • formulation of the 2012 vision plan and design program;
  • scoping overall master planning efforts and individual project implementation;
  • management of design and planning consultants;
  • rail and bus capacity analysis and development of comprehensive intermodal origin-destination models;
  • development of rail and bus passenger facility architectural prototypes;
  • construction feasibility and formulation of development phases and schedules;
  • formulation of project Building Information Modeling scope and requirements

As a part of the 2012 master plan team, including HOK, Parsons Brinkerhoff, and Shalom Baranes Associates, LAB was awarded an AIA National Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design in 2014.
