Project Summary

Multi-modal transport hub upgrade

For the FIFA World Cup 2014, some 5000 car-parking spaces will be needed at the soccer stadium. The Multimodal transport hub upgrade, however, takes the idea for a car park above the train lines much further – a main station will link all public transport, serve as a connection platform for pedestrians and cyclists, and include a public park in its design.

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the Holcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
