PLH Arkitekter and Atkins win major framework agreements with Copenhagen Metro and Greater Copenhagen Light Rail

PLH Arkitekter and Atkins are among the winners of two major framework agreements for Copenhagen Metro and Greater Copenhagen Light Rail worth up to DKK 700 million.

The work of expanding the metro and light rail in the Danish capital region will have PLH Arkitekter as a permanent passenger. Together with Atkins, one of the world's largest infrastructure consultancy firms, PLH has won two major framework agreements for the next eight years. The agreements cover the areas of civil works and transport systems and railway technology worth up to DKK 300 and 400 million, respectively.

“We’re incredibly happy and proud that we can continue the journey with the metro, and now also get on board the work on the capital's light rail. With our extensive experience in infrastructure and our focus on promoting a more sustainable society, this is the perfect place for PLH Arkitekter to be. At the same time, we’re all very much looking forward to continuing and expanding our great collaboration with Atkins,” says PLH-partner Ole Jonsson.

Almost from the very beginning, PLH Arkitekter has been involved in the metro's journey with the design, planning and construction of the five overground stations on the M1 Line and Copenhagen Metro’s Control and Clearing Center in Vestamager.

Most recently, PLH has worked as an architect for MT Højgaard in connection with the metro's Control and Maintenance Center at Vasbygade and fitting out work on the 17 new underground stations on the M3 City Circle Line, and as an architectural consultant for the contracting group Met Nord in connection with the fitting out of the two new stations – Nordhavn and Orientkaj – on the M4 Line.

In addition to Atkins, with PLH Arkitekter as a sub-consultant, Niras, Rambøll and Cowi will also be part of the framework agreements.
