Ipiranga Monorail Station
For better user comfort, a 2.1 km extension was proposed to the Ipiranga Station on the Line 15 of the monorail system next to the Ipiranga Station on Line 10 of the CPTM for an integration between Line 15 and Line 10, making Metro monorail Line 15 a total of 26.6 km. The project contracted out to GPO Sistran, Brazilian subsidiary of GPO Group, consisted of the development of the Preliminary Design and Detailed Design through BIM for the Ipiranga Station on Line 15 of the monorail system of Metro.
The new Ipiranga Station of the São Paulo Metro has a total built surface area of 16,000 m² and an altitude of 30 m. It is distributed into 5 floors including technical rooms, a boarding and deboarding platform and an intermediate level for user connection. The Preliminary Design was recognised with the BIM 1st Prize granted by the Brazilian Public Administration to Companhia do Metropolitano de São Paulo – METRÔ for the use of such an innovative design technology.
