Nunawading Station

Prefabricated pods
Grimshaw architects
Felicetti provided Structural Design and Certification for the pods

Grimshaw were engaged to provide urban planning and station design services for the Springvale Road Project Alliance. The design incorporates an elevated concourse, pedestrian connections, bus interchange facilities and station and platform architectural elements. Integration of architectural elements such as the concourse canopies with associated ETFE pillows provide extensive weather protection to commuters whilst allowing natural daylight to filter through onto both the concourse level and underpass level below. The structure also allows an open and spacious environment with a single line of column supports freeing up visual and physical obstructions on the concourse level. The prefabricated station amenity pods built by Precom and engineered by Felicetti incorporate modern facilities for staff as well as waiting room and retail areas for commuters. The pods are clad in a highly robust vitreous enamel panel which creates an identity for the station precinct while also providing long term durability.
