  • Construction of elevated car park over a fishing lake

  • New 460 space car park with access road

  • New highway supporting piled wall to Local Authority approval

The site was a logistical challenge with the existing tenants remaining in occupation and access to the main shopping centre running through the site.

The project included challenging civil works with the construction and formation of a concrete deck over an existing fishing lake to accommodate the additional car park area.

A new contiguous wall was also formed adjacent to the existing highway to create additional retail and service yard area.
