This car park was constructed to support the 20,000 sqft office development for property investment company, SEGRO. The car park consists of 945 car parking spaces over six suspended parking levels and includes a cladding system which complements the surrounding campus development.

The superstructure incorporates a galvanised steel frame, Bourne Parking’s Montex flooring technology and a crash barrier system, as well as a high specification parking management system which will identify available spaces and assist in locating your car on return.

The requirements of the tenant were very demanding and the success of the project hinged on the ability to deliver the multi storey car park in only 19 weeks. We recognised that the key element on the critical path was the construction of the stair towers, and so through a value engineering exercise we removed the requirement for the steel frame and blockwork walls, and replaced the entire stair tower with a fully precast concrete structure (walls, floors, roofs etc). This reduced our site programme by one month helping us to achieve the challenging programme.
