Peter Engstrom is a Principal at Jasmax with more than 20 years’ international experience designing award-winning transport projects. Having led significant developments in Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and the Middle East, Peter has specialist knowledge of the mechanisms and stakeholder alignment strategies necessary to move major infrastructure projects off the drawing board and into reality.

As demonstrated in past projects, Peter optimises the potential of each design to transform communities. His expertise in masterplanning, transport-oriented-development (TODs) and urban regeneration adds significant value to broader societal outcomes, equity of access, and investment opportunities. Peter has experienced first-hand the role of great public transport in unlocking economic, social and environmental progress in growing international cities like Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. For Peter, generating connectivity provides the opportunity for powerful place-making and identity-enriching experiences. He welcomes the opportunity to approach public transport design by expressing Aotearoa New Zealand’s unique bicultural identity.

Peter considers a transport system a civic experience and should be accorded the same degree of design consideration as a public library or major art gallery. His attention to detail and desire to provide inviting, safe, and legible passenger experiences are highlighted in the design of Puhinui Station. Linking Britomart to the Airport and Botany, this station offers an easily navigable interchange between bus and rail. The unique sculptural design reflects the stations’ underlying purpose: to enable the streamlined and seamless flow of people from one mode of transport to the next.

His international portfolio includes the Thomson Metro Line in Singapore, the Dubai Metro, a design proposal for the Melbourne Metro, the winning Woodlands North Coast Master Plan Competition’ in Singapore; the 150,000m² Parcel H development in Kuala Lumpur / Malaysia; the Integrated Transport Hub in Singapore; and a Water Transport Study in the UAE.
