Barrier-free extension of Hungen station

The Hungen station was officially reopened on 11 October 2017 after extensive expansion and modernisation work by HERING. In addition to civil engineering services such as the new construction of the main and middle platforms and the elevators and staircases, HERING platform roofs have also been installed.

The insertion procedure for the new extension of the pedestrian underpass on the central platform is a special feature of this construction project.

HERING sustainability

At HERING, we see ourselves as pioneers in the field of sustainability. As early as 1996, we were the first construction company in Germany to obtain EMAS certification. Every three years, we publish an environmental statement documenting our goals and how we have achieved them. Actually, for the first time, we published a sustainability report with an integrated environmental statement in accordance with EMAS - a logical next step in view of our ecological and social responsibility. It documents how we deal internally and externally with the issues that are essential to our future viability.
