Sustainable Shelter

VDL Metaal

Together with our client VDL Metaal, we developed a concept for a sustainable bus shelter. This shelter is made from as much recycled material as possible. All materials can be separated and reused at the end of the lifecycle. The bus shelter has transparent corners; as a result, the total mass of the supporting structure is reduced. The roof can be fitted with sedum, glass or glass with PV cells.

The concept is developed in detail into a complete line of modular bus shelters. We provided engineering for each of the variations. With this bus stop OFN has won the tender of the municipality of Amersfoort for new bus shelters: 136 bus shelters will be installed in Amersfoort.

The shelter has energy-efficient lighting and a very modest ‘footprint’: the MKI number of this shelter is approximately 75% lower than that of a comparable standard shelter.
