Intermodal Transit Terminal Design
Binghamton, NY | Broome County
McFarland Johnson provided professional services related to the development and design of the Binghamton Intermodal Transit Terminal. The Terminal will serve as a central transfer point between local and intercity bus operators, with the possibility of serving paratransit services. The Intermodal site is 3.1 acres in downtown Binghamton. McFarland Johnson provided the site utility design as well as the mechanical, electrical, fire protection and plumbing services for the new terminal building. The new facility is approximately 20,000 square feet and houses the BC Transit, Greyhound, and Coach USA bus lines, as well as planned commercial and office spaces. There is also the potential for this terminal to serve kiss-and-ride users, as well as offering shuttle and taxi services.
Many sustainable design elements were incorporated into this project. These included site selection; alternative transportation; water efficient landscaping; CO2 sensors to reduce outside air requirements; daylight areas over 90% of the space; and a building envelope and systems which exceed NYS building code requirements. MJ also utilized building energy simulation tools, including Trace700, to analyze building energy efficiency and evaluate cost-effective designs and for improving energy efficiency. This project was designed to USGBC LEED Certified standards.
