TKDA worked with a design/build team led by Mortenson Construction to restore and renovate the transportation hub at the Historic Union Depot in Saint Paul, Minnesota. TKDA provided mechanical and electrical engineering services, building fire protection systems, and railroad coordination.
The revitalized Union Depot incorporates in one historic location transit modes that exist today with others that are programmed in the region’s long-range plan. This facility will allow for a seamless transfer among transportation modes and serves regional, state and community needs. The hub was designed to accommodate light rail transit, bus service, Amtrak and Midwest High-Speed rail.
TKDA provided structural engineering on the original Union Depot building which was completed in 1923.
