Initially, Bourne Parking secured the project through a traditional competitive tender. Following this process we were engaged through a Pre Construction Services Agreement to enable our involvement in early design development and provide a scheme to meet the Client’s expectations. The project brief was to design and build a multi-storey car park to provide the primary car parking requirement for the Sky campus, while leaving in place an existing Energy Centre within the car park footprint.
The structure is supported on piled foundations which along with the new drainage system are carefully located to miss the plethora of in-ground services, including some major Sky TV fibre optic systems. The suspended decks are constructed of pre-cast concrete floor units laid as a composite floor onto a steel frame. Pedestrian access to upper decks is via fully precast concrete stair/lift cores. Waterproofing, signage, road markings, vehicle entry systems, new mains electrical transformer, new communications room, programmable LED lighting and external perimeter cladding have also been installed to complete the project.
