Project Description

CRRC CHINA

TYPE: Rail

DESCRIPTION

TDI have been involved in various projects in China since around 2006.  Initially supporting on technology transfer projects offering design support to manufacturing partners.

Subsequent partnerships have led to TDI working directly with CRRC providing the interior and exterior design/styling of new build metro vehicles for 6 different lines, these have been developed and approved for production. TDI have provided the ‘design book’ for the metro vehicles in Suzhou region since 2014.

TDI’s experienced industrial designers have extensive engineering knowledge of railway design. TDI aims to fulfil the client’s aspirations for vehicle design with a tight specification within the manufacturing and time frame limits. This is an iterative process that develops through the concept and into the production phase of work.

  • 2014 – Suzhou Line 4

  • 2015-16 – Suzhou Line 3

  • 2016 – Guiyang Line 1

  • 2017 – Future ‘blue-sky’ interior concept

  • 2018-2019 – Suzhou Line 5

  • 2020-2021 – Next Generation Projects

TDI employs only industrial designers who have extensive engineering knowledge and practical experience of designing for railways. The client has aspirations for the vehicle design but also a tight specification and we aim to fullfill both with reference to the manufacturing and time frame limits. This is an iterative process that develops all the way through the concept and into the production phase of work.
