Intermodal Passenger Rail Facility
A groundbreaking ceremony for the Dearborn Train Station was held on April 10, 2012, though utility work began in March 2012. The Intermodal Passenger Rail Station cost $28.2 million to build. The station has bicycle racks, a metal roof with solar collectors, energy-efficient lighting, geothermal heating and cooling, and stormwater management features, such as rain gardens and bioswales.
The 16,000-square-foot station was sustainably designed to meet the standards of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design Program. The Intentio Innovations BIM team was responsible for the modeling and coordination of the mechanical piping systems incorporated in the new station. The first train pulled out of the new station in December of 2014.
