Huber Car Park System successfully delivered a Multi Storey Staff Car Park for Tesco Stores Limited in Welwyn Garden City. The facility features 4 parking levels and provides a total of 693 parking bays. Located amidst Tesco’s headquarters building complex it is connected to the existing office building by a pedestrian bridge. HUBER acted as a general contractor in this project and managed all parts of the work from site setup and construction phase logistics, satisfaction of planning conditions and statutory compliance, to groundworks, utility and underground services and naturally included all parts of the multi storey car park itself. This project also entailed the construction of a temporary surface car park which satisfied the ongoing need for parking places during the construction phase. HUBER LED-lights in combination with intelligent car park control system provide homogenous illumination of all levels and grant a high degree of user security while achieving energy savings of up to 75 % compared with conventional lighting. The new car park has also been fitted with a vehicle counting system which is connected to the business park’s central computer and some security features like CCTV, access control and intruder alarm. The steel car park elevations are clad in vertical timber battens whilst the concrete staircases feature a vertical fully glazed opening.
