OpenBuildings Station Designer

Design, Analyze, Visualize, and Simulate Rail and Metro Stations


Multi-Discipline Rail Station Design and Pedestrian Simulation

OpenBuildings Station Designer improves design quality by optimizing the functional space layout of the station building and the path of travel for the pedestrian. Design, analyze, visualize, and simulate rail and metro stations of any size, form, and complexity. Create pedestrian simulation scenarios to improve the quality of your station design and facility operations. OpenBuildings Station Designer provides building information modeling (BIM) advancements so you can deliver station design projects faster and with greater confidence in your design, workflow, capabilities, and deliverables.  Effectively communicate design intent and eliminate barriers between building disciplines and geographically distributed teams. Multi-discipline: Increase collaboration among architects, mechanical, electrical, and structural engineers with a shared set of tools and workflows Interoperability: Integrate information you have from multiple formats and easily work on projects of any size Information-rich deliverables: Clearly communicate your design intent with reliable deliverables that you can easily customize Unrestrictive design environment: Model anything with total freedom from stations with simple to highly complex geometry and designs Building performance: Simulate station buildings and predict real-world performance of the asset quickly and with precision to explore various options for iterative refinement


  • Analyze building system performance
Simulate real-world performance and evaluate building system performances so you can quickly discover the best design choices. Inform early design decisions with conceptual energy analysis that provides peak loads, annual energy calculations, energy consumptions, carbon emissions, and fuel costs.
  • Collaborate across multi-discipline teams
Collaborate across multiple disciplines with tools for architectural, electrical, mechanical, and structural systems design in one application. Coordinate your designs better thanks to a common design environment and a streamlined workflow. Resolve clashes with built-in clash detection and share mark-ups of models and documentation across teams to reduce project errors.
  • Design mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems
Design complex MEP systems. Model fully parametric air-handling, piping, and plumbing systems. Design lighting, power, fire-detection, and other electrical subsystems.
  • Design station building structures
Model steel, concrete, and timber structures from walls, foundations, and columns to other structural components. Produce plans, framing layouts, sections, and elevations. Integrate with detailing applications, including Bentley's ProStructures.
  • Design stations and facilities
Develop and design buildings and facilities of any size and complexity with comprehensive architectural capabilities. Produce coordinated architectural documentation directly from the building model. Create floor plans, sections, elevations, and schedules for any architectural component.
