Redevelopment of Centraal Station Amsterdam

Suspended ceiling construction consisting of 25 kilometres of support channels

‘Centraal Station’ train station is situated in the centre of Amsterdam, built on three man-made islands. In 2017, a new hall called the Poortvrije Passage was added to the station, featuring one hundred shops and restaurants as well as east and west passageways. The approximately 800 metre-long Poortvrije Passage and the newly constructed 150 metre-long utility tunnel feature more than 180,000 MÜPRO products.
