Car Parks

The provision of user friendly safe and aesthetically pleasing parking is a key factor in the success of any commercial development. However, the Multi Storey Car Park (MSCP) is a unique building with a range of specific problems that need to be addressed.

MSCP's are built using varying methods of construction with cost often being the primary consideration in their design. Accordingly, suitable protective measures are often sacrificed at construction phases, ignoring the ethos of life cycle costing principles.

The car park as a structure is unique. Extremes of cyclical loading, often on a daily basis, occur as the car park is filled on a morning and emptied by evening. Lacking a stable heat source, the structure feels the full force of daily and seasonal temperature variations.

Water and contaminants are easily introduced both directly through the open sides or indirectly via cars entering the structure. Harmful chlorides are deposited by cars and lead to chloride attack of the steel reinforcing bars. High concentrations of carbon gasses from exhaust fumes accelerate the carbonation of the concrete leading to further corrosion of the steel.

With this in mind protective coatings and effective weatherproofing measures should be a primary consideration in a new structure.

In existing car parks, there is often visual evidence to demonstrate the effect of insufficient protection. Whilst repairs and protective coatings at this stage are often reactive measures, careful material specifications and good choice of experienced contractors can return the car park to a high level of decorative and structural well-being.
