This new transportation center was designed to reduce vehicular congestion and, thereby, promote a more pedestrian friendly market environment for the International Home Furnishings Market in downtown High Point. Mendenhall Station, is located along Commerce Street, between Hamilton Street to the East and Wrenn Street to the West.
The design includes the addition of a 50,000 SF steel space frame canopy system with a laminated glass roof, and four bus traffic lanes, each lane with 9 bus loading bay areas. Creative lighting gives the canopy a glowing quality at night, and provides additional ground light levels. A new kiosk provides timely updates and transportation information to Market visitors. The facility is wired with the latest in data technology to allow for future connectivity and flexibility, and also features special sound and electrical components to accommodate special outdoor events and performances.
This was an engineering-led project with DMP as prime.
