Over the past 10 years regular structural inspections have revealed a number of defects in columns, beams and slabs (car park surfacing) and a number of smaller repair schemes have taken place to maintain the car park’s structural integrity and safety of its users.
Deterioration of the remainder of the car park has continued and more recently a number of options were considered for the interchange including complete demolition however a budget cost proposal and scheme was developed illustrating how the entire structure could be comprehensively refurbished. in August 2016 it was agreed to progress with structural repairs to the car park and refurbishment of the interchange below and subsequently a design team was created to develop the scheme in greater detail.
USL StructureCare have recently been appointed to deliver the multi-million pound repair package to the car park including:
Ryan Williams, Special Projects Manager at USL StructureCare commented "the car park is only 5 miles from our Sheffield office, so we are delighted to have secured the project with Interserve. The specification called for a single source responsibility solution delivering a proven and guaranteed range of products to extend the life of the car park. Uniquely, we are able to achieve this at USL not just in terms of concrete repair products, corrosion mitigation and deck coatings, but being both manufacturer and installer, we can offer a completely compelling and unrivalled single point of responsibility guarantee'.
The project which will run until early 2019 will see both the car park transformed as well as the interchange beneath.
