At Heerlen "Maankwartier" railway station, a new entrance to and from the railway has been built. This entrance consists mainly of a Conservatory and two Transfers on both platforms. There are also a few smaller parts such as two elevator constructions and two stairways.
The entrance consists mainly of the steel structure that remains in view, a glass outer shell and a floor. The entrance rests on one side on an existing building and further on the foundations in the platforms.
The coverings are each situated on a platform. A number of train tracks are located between these two platforms. The Conservatory is placed on one side against an existing building construction. On the other side, this Conservatory rests on the columns of the Transverse Structure.
The bottom of the Conservatory consists of a concrete floor at a level of 7.5 + m. This floor disc extends into the Transfers and bears on one side vertically and horizontally on the adjacent buildings.
The roof of the Conservatory consists of steel roof plates on steel beams. The roof surface is equipped with diagonals to use this roof as a stiff disk. The roof beams and the disk are connected to the steel structure of the underlying buildings.
The structures are equipped with a pile foundation.
