Manchester Airport T1 & T3 Multi-Storey Car Park
We delivered a multi-storey car park (MSCP) scheme on behalf of BAM Construction, for The Manchester Airports Group (MAG). The pre-cast concrete five storey car park provides 6,238 spaces for meet and greet for Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. The value of the scheme was £34 million.
The first section of spaces was delivered in June 2018; with final completion in April 2019. The programme from design through to completion took 18 months. We delivered the installation over six phases, installing the first phase from February to June 2018 so that the first section of spaces was ready for the summer season. This first phase was challenging from both a programme and procurement point of view as it contained all of the access and egress ramps. It was the most complex part of the project but was necessary to meet the deadline of the start of the summer season; and for the other phases to follow on.
Out of the hundreds of components produced, our design was always focused on the reduction of site labour time, eliminating subcontractor works and enhancing site safety issues. Two major factors in this were the supply of perimeter edge beams complete with their handrail protection, plus stair flights fixed with their permanent handrails.
The design also benefits from invisible connection, so there are no unsightly corbels to interrupt or impede the architectural intent.
