Severud Associates Innovative Structural Design Propels Wins in Showcase of the World’s Best Engineering Efforts
More than five decades after demolition of the original Penn Station and almost 30 years after conception of a plan to augment it, the new Moynihan Train Hall now provides visitors with a breathtaking entrance and dignified sense of arrival to New York City.
More than 500 ACEC members and guests attended the 2022 black-tie Engineering Excellence Awards Gala” hosted by Emmy-award winning comedian Ross Shafer. The Gala was held May 24th in Washington D.C. as part of the 2022 ACEC Annual Convention.
With innovative structural design by Severud Associates, the 255,000-square-foot hall expands Penn Station across Eighth Avenue and into the landmarked James A. Farley building, the former main city Post Office.
The project features a 30,000-square-foot main boarding concourse, formerly the mail sorting room, and a 92-foot-high roof featuring dramatically arched skylights supported by original but previously hidden and innovatively reinforced latticed steel trusses.
Other Moynihan Train Hall enhancements include multiple new station entrances, an expanded West End Concourse, the intermodal Midblock Hall. It restores a grand entrance to New York City, greatly improves access and interconnectivity, and provides many amenities to improve visitors’ experience.
