Other then that it will be a Daewoo city in which passenger terminal building, shops area,there will be a motel and an employees residence along with it. The terminal building will provide the future extension and will acommodate over capacity. Other private transporters can also use this terminal if they agree to maintain that standards that this company has.
Daewoo is already operating in this city. The building they are using for a terminal is not designed for a terminal, so they have a plan to move to a bigger place. Daewoo already has made a good impression on customers because of major differences between the local transporters and them. This terminal building will be the city's major monumental building. Hassan Raza, Assalamu Alaikum Since you are working on thesis on bus terminals, you have a chance to really work on the bus terminals in Bangalore.
Few of the bus terminals are state-of-the-art, located just at the heart of Bangalore. I think you can get information on these on the websites too. Bangalore is also the first city in entire India to introduce state of the art Volvo vehicles for city commuters, who are ready to pay anything for comfort. In case you don't find then, kindly write to Mr.
I have checked the info about the new Volvo bus service from Bangalore; the bus is really a state of the art, and it will make a major difference for the commuter who are interested in long distance travelling, but there are no new terminals for this new service. Depends primarily on the earning potential involved and the amount of space available. The size of the dispatch office may vary anywhere from 50 to sq. Offices all terminals regardless of type require a certain amount of office space.
The specific area to be provided depends on the terminal size and type. Although usually offices for the terminal manager, passenger agent, and switchboard are sufficient, in larger terminals more elaborate facilities are required. Where the corridor is also used as a waiting area to accommodate standing pedestrians, the maximum potential accumulation and safe human occupancy of the corridor should be determined.
The flow volume that allows for the selection of normal walking speed and avoidance of traffic conflicts is equivalent to 7 pfm or less. This standard would be used in passenger terminals that do not have severe peaking patterns or space restrictions.
Where severe repetitive peaks and space restraints occur, such as in a commuter terminal, the more stringent standard of 10 to 15 pfm may be used.
This standard allows the attainment of near-normal walking speed but does result in more frequent traffic conflicts with other pedestrians. The maximum capacity of a free-swinging door is approximately 60 persons per minute, but this capacity is obtained with frequent traffic disruptions and queuing at the entrance section.
A standard of 40 persons per minute would-be representative of a busy situation with occasional traffic disruptions. Where free-flowing traffic is desired a standard of 20 persons per minute should be adopted. STAIRS Human locomotion on stairs is much more stylized and restricted than walking because of the restraints imposed by the dimensional configuration of the stairs, physical exertion, and concerns for safety. As with corridors, capacity flow is obtained when there is a dense crowding of pedestrians combined with restricted, uncomfortable locomotion.
The maximum practical flow on a stair is approximately17 persons per foot width of stairway per minute pfm in the upward or design direction.
An average of about 20 square feet per person or more is required before stair locomotion becomes normal and traffic conflicts with other pedestrians can be avoided. This is equivalent to a flow volume of about 5 pfm. This standard would be used in terminals that do not have severe peaking patterns or apace restrictions.
In commuter terminals, the more stringent standard of 7 to 10 pfm would be acceptable. Riser height has a significant impact on stair locomotion. Lower riser heights 7 in. Or less, increase pedestrian speed and thus improve traffic efficiency. The lower riser height is also desirable to assist the handicapped pedestrian.
Queuing areas a number of different pedestrian 8. Linear queues will occur where passengers line up to purchase tickets or board buses. Care must be taken that these lines do not disrupt other terminal functions. The length of a linear queue may be estimated on the basis of an average per person spacing of 20 in. The presence of baggage has little effect on this spacing because baggage is placed on the floor either between the legs or at the sides.
Bulk queues may occur within a passenger terminal where passengers are waiting for bus arrivals or other services. Where no circulation through the queuing space is required, area occupancies as low as5 sq. Ft per person may be tolerated for short periods. This allows standing pedestrians to avoid physical contact with each other. Ft per person is required.
Human area occupancies below 3 sq. Ft per person result in crowded, immobile, and potentially unsafe queues, particularly where pedestrians may be jostled off platforms. The standard calls for a minimum of 10 degrees, violated only in the period. Only one car, mercury, met the minimum standard. Most cars are substantially above 10 degrees. The most critical condition is at driveways where the apron is steep, or a combination of excessive crown to gutter and apron slope.
The standard developed in by the society of automotive engineers calls for a minimum value of 15 degrees. For slopes over 10 percent, a transition at least 8 ft long should be provided at each end of the ramp at one half the slope of the ramp itself. DRIVEWAY EXITS A ramped driveway exit rising up to a public sidewalk must have a transition section that is almost level maximum slope: 5 percent before intersecting the sidewalk to prevent the hood of the car from obscuring the driver's view of pedestrians on the walk.
This transition should be 16 ft. Property line walls should also be regulated so as not to interfere with the driver's view of pedestrians on a public sidewalk. Wherever an exit driveway is parallel and adjacent to a property line wall which extends all the way of a sidewalk, the edge of the driveway should be physically established, by curb or railing, at least 6 ft from that wall. For each foot that the wall is held back from the sidewalk, the required distance between driveway and wall may be reduced by one foot.
The layout of the parking facility must be flexible enough to adapt to future changes in vehicle dimensions. The stall and aisle dimensions must be compatible with the type of operation planned for the facility. The critical dimensions are the width and length of stalls, the width of aisles, the angle of parking, and the radius of turns. All of these dimensions are related to the vehicle dimensions and performance characteristics.
In recent years there have been a number of changes in vehicle dimensions. The popularity of minivans and sport utility vehicles has had an impact on the design of parking facilities. For the near future, a wide mix of vehicle sizes should be anticipated. Dimension elements of possible parking layout 8.
If the stall is placed at an angle of less than 90o, then the width parallel to the aisle will increase while the width perpendicular to the vehicle will remain the same. The length of the stall refers to the longitudinal dimension of the stall. When the stall is rotated an angle of less than 90o, the stall depth perpendicular to the aisle increases up to 1 foot or more.
It should be noted that the effective stall depth depends on the boundary conditions of the module, which could include walls on each side of the module, curbs with or without overhang, or drive-in versus back-in operations. For parking at angles of less than 90o, front bumper overhangs beyond the curbing are generally reduced with decreasing angle and, for example, drop to about 2 feet at 45o angles.
There are two types of interlock. The most common, and preferable, type is the bumper-to- bumper arrangement. The second type, the "herringbone" interlock, can be used at 45o and is produced by adjacent sides having one way movements in the same direction. This arrangement requires the bumper of one car to face the fender of another car. Figure shows several different module layouts that are commonly used.
The relative efficiencies of various parking angles can be compared by looking at the number of square feet required per car space including the prorated area of the access aisle and entrances. Where the size and shape of the tract is appropriate, both the 90o and the 60o parking layouts tend to require the smallest area per car space.
A very flat angle layout is significantly less efficient than other angles. Oneway aisles there are many conditions where oneway aisles are desirable.
However, the angle should usually be no greater than 75o. Drivers may be tempted to enter the parking aisles and stalls from the wrong direction when the stall angle is too large. Adjacent aisles generally have opposite driving directions. The apparently insignificant detail of the right-side loading of buses often restricts terminal design possibilities. This is true whether motion is forward or backward. The turns required to accomplish the movement and positioning of buses are variable and differ considerably with the equipment encountered.
The turning template provides a convenient graphic method to determine minimum clearances required. Requires Excessive Amount Of Space.
Bus Maneuvering Difficult. Most efficient buses swing into position along natural driving are. Space required at front is minimum-wide space at rear making maneuvering easy. As the angle of pitch in saw-tooth bays increases so does the distance between each bay fig 2. The number and type of employees may be considered in locating it near these facilities.
Following are the general considerations while planning spaces in a building block: 1. Organization Vertical And Horizontal 2.
Integration Of Planning Grid 3. Positioning Of Column 4. Zoning Of Services Distribution 6. Circulation Of Users-Occupants, Services 7.
Noise And Surroundings 8. Orientation And Fenestration Percentages 9. Flexibility and Phasing. In a building, the services play a major role in the functioning of the building. The building services should be of following character: 2. They should function efficiently. The services should be cost-effective not only in the initial setup but also during the long run. They should utilize minimum energy resources and should be energy efficient. The services should be so calculated that they cater to the maximum peak loads.
The maintenance of all these services should be easy and efficient. The services should be adequately protected and should not pose a threat for the building or its inhabitants. In a multi-story building, great care should be taken in zoning the services appropriately. The services should cater not only to the present needs but should be in accordance with future predicted requirements to prevent any unnecessary alterations in the building in the future.
The Services Incorporated Are: 1. Water storage and sewage treatment plant 2. Water supply and sewerage board provides reliable water supply. Consumption at the park. Water quality should be regularly checked in compliance with who standards, ensuring clean water supply at all times. A sewage treatment plant that meets pollution control regulations recycles water for landscaping uses, maintaining the parks concept of a green culture should be provided.
It should also be near the service entry for the ease of repair and maintenance of the machines. They should be near the service entry in the basement or ground floor for easy maintenance. AHU These are for distributing conditioned air from the ac plant to each floor and filtering the return air.To remove smoke, fresh air should be introduced at each level. Daewoo already has made a good impression on customers because of major differences between the local transporters and them. This standard would be used in passenger terminals that do not have severe peaking patterns or space restrictions. Where the size and shape of the tract is appropriate, both the 90o and the 60o parking layouts tend to require the smallest area per car space. The size of the dispatch office may vary anywhere from 50 to sq. Required Width: Min 6. As a general rule of thumb, however, an allowance and stalls from the wrong direction when the stall adequate for an intercity terminal. Riser height has a significant impact on stair locomotion. Drivers may be tempted to enter the parking aisles bumper arrangement angle is too large.
On the average, one position should be provided for each 25 to 30 waiting room seats. Poor environmental condition in the CBD, with high noise and air pollution levels and congestion on roads. At both far ends offices and commercial areas are provided at first floor.
Poor environmental condition in the CBD, with high noise and air pollution levels and congestion on roads.
Water storage and sewage treatment plant 2. Main terminal building has shops, ticket counters, toilets, drinking water and other such facilities at the ground floor.
Positioning Of Column 4. In recent years there have been a number of changes in vehicle dimensions. This is equivalent to a flow volume of about 5 pfm. Anyway, I imagine that "Daewoo" as a single commercial client with an international image to maintain, will have a great deal to say about how they want their terminal to look.
Fire escape stairs could be either open to air or should have blower system to suck out air from the stairs area in case of fire. At both far ends offices and commercial areas are provided at first floor. Or less, increase pedestrian speed and thus improve traffic efficiency. Resistance to collapse 2.
Maintenance shed for carrying out small repairs: 6. Fire escape stairs could be either open to air or should have blower system to suck out air from the stairs area in case of fire. Only one car, mercury, met the minimum standard. Resistance to collapse 2. No space in an office building should be more than 30mts from the fire escape stairs.
The flow volume that allows for the selection of normal walking speed and avoidance of traffic conflicts is equivalent to 7 pfm or less. Double basement parking structure with a parking capacity of two wheelers 9. Central atrium is more than double height. Landscaping uses, maintaining the parks concept of a green culture should be provided. DRIVEWAY EXITS A ramped driveway exit rising up to a public sidewalk must have a transition section that is almost level maximum slope: 5 percent before intersecting the sidewalk to prevent the hood of the car from obscuring the driver's view of pedestrians on the walk.
