Rooms’ Mechanical Design Criteria


This paper is unique in defining the mechanical criteria for all room types that could be anticipated to be accommodated in a station, shaft and portal.

It clarifies the minimum room design environmental requirements, including temperature range, ventilation, and noise criteria for each room type.

This provides a clear brief to any mechanical design team involved in the design of stations, shafts and portals.

With an agreed set of minimum environmental requirements the opportunity exists to:

1. Drive out unnecessary complexity of installation.
2. Drive out unnecessary complexity of operation.
3. Gain more consistency of design and application.
4. Reduce capital and operational expenditure.

This paper could be adapted for any future railway projects where similar room types and systems are to be designed.

There is an accompanying document that should be read and used alongside this, Mechanical Design Principles.
