Gottlieb Paludan Architects to design maintenance facilities for Denmark's new trains


In collaboration with Rambøll and Mott MacDonald, Gottlieb Paludan Architects has won the project for the design of three maintenance facilities for Denmark's new fleet of electric trains.

Danish State Railways DSB is entering a new era of electric trains. During the coming years, the national transportation company will replace its more than 100 current trains with electric trains in order to contribute to a more sustainable Danish public transport sector. In connection with this transition, DSB needs to establish three new maintenance facilities in the cities of Copenhagen, Aarhus and Fredericia. Sustainability is a guiding principle for the new facilities that must be certified under the DGNB sustainability standard. 

Gottlieb Paludan Architects will be responsible for architectural and landscape work on the project, thus continuing its 100-year collaboration with DSB. Gottlieb Paludan Architects has been involved in all of the previous railway workshops in Denmark, and as such is able to contribute with extensive experience in this area.

The project work begins mid-2019 and Rambøll is the lead consultant.
