The Metrotown Skytrain Station is now twice the size of the original station built in 1986. The project included three new Station Houses, improved access via escalators, elevators, staircases and four new points of access to the platform, extended roofs, three station vestibules and ancillary buildings, bike storage, as well as upgrades to Central Boulevard and a new plaza area.

Graham’s scope of work also included an innovative approach to the erection of two 250’ long roof trusses above the guideway and fit-out of electrical, mechanical, glazing, roofing, cladding, and safety systems.

The very definition of a project executed in a live environment, the Metrotown site team managed an average 50,000 passengers every day and worked countless night shifts to successfully tackle changes and challenges and turn over the station as scheduled, meeting TransLink’s objectives.
