Safe lighting for underground metro station
Rotterdam’s metro network is the oldest and largest metro network in the Benelux. A number of metro stations that had become outdated needed to be refurbished. At one of the underground stations in the network, named Beurs, the electrical engineering systems, including lighting and the entire power supply system, were modernised. Particular priorities for the post-refurbishment situation were that the station had to be vandalism-proof, easy to clean and robust, without compromising on the welcoming feel for travellers. Iv-Bouw was responsible for consultancy activities, revising the project specifications, modifying drawings and drafting a budget. Iv-Bouw also performed some of the work during the actual refurbishment.
