Amtrak, Master Plan – Washington Union Station

Amtrak, Master Plan – Washington Union Station

Project Overview

Amtrak presented a new Master Plan for Washington Union Station to convert the aging, congested station, built in 1907, to a modern, welcoming transportation hub for high-speed rail. The three-phase upgrade helped Amtrak double the number of trains and triple the number of passengers served by better using existing space on all station levels. The first phase involved the redesign of the existing concourse and initial work on tracks and platforms. In the second phase, tracks and platforms on the station’s east side will be reconstructed. The third phase includes demolition of a parking garage and construction of a new train shed. Envision provided cost estimating services for the tasks associated with the Master Plan, including 30/60/95/100% estimates, material and labor pricing, and option estimates.
