Share news
The construction of the concrete part of Jinan East Railway Station project is nearly completed. The processing of the steel structure of the main roof and its assembly is currently in great progress. The roof steel structure is planned to be completed soon this year. When the construction of Jinan East Railway Station will be achieved, with 408 meters in length and 180 meters in span, the roof structure will be one of the largest arch structures in China. 

The project begins at 2015 and the construction works will be completed at the end of 2018. AREP was invited by China Railway Design Corporation (Formerly named as The Third Railway Survey and Design Institute Group Corporation) to participate into the design work of Jinan East Railway Station. With abundant experience of railway station design, AREP proposed a entirely new design concept for the station building.
The station’s saddle shape is formed by twenty large tridimensional arch structures with gradual changes in span and height. The hyperbolic shape roof of the station with the folding Canopy together makes a new iconic image for the newly developed east district of Jinan. With high ceilings and open spaces that are naturally fit, as well as good ventilation and featured temperature controls, the station halls will create a pleasant escape from the busy city outside the doors. The transition from the lower ceiling level spaces in the center of the building to the open plan areas on either side, will accentuate the impressive scale of the station halls.

The clients of this project are Jinan Jiqing Hi-speed Railway Co., Ltd; Jinan Rail Transit Group Co., Ltd and Jinan Railway Bureau etc.
