David Moodie Portfolio
Metshelter is now the exclusive supplier of bus shelters for all of Auckland. We designed a modular shelter system that competed with (and won against) two large multi national firms. (see more here) I designed a connector system that allows any shelter to be reconfigured to suit the needs of a growing city.
David Moodie Design
My design for the new Auckland bus shelter family includes three standard shelter sizes and bespoke designs for larger interchanges. The shelters include solar lighting, advertising and touch screen panels. The project required extruded aluminium and plastic, die-cast, sand-cast, CNC machining and fabricated sheetmetal components.

The initial prototype can be seen on Symonds street in Auckland - or just here if that's easier!
