Developer Quintain is to build Europe’s first multi-storey coach park at Wembley.
The vast purpose-built parking complex will boast pink painted decks and contain 290 dedicated coach spaces over two levels. A further five-storeys of over 700 car spaces will also be located above one end of the complex.
Civil specialist O’Keefe has completed groundworks for the complex in a contract worth £13m.
Now German car park design and build specialist Huber will lead construction of the above-ground structure under a £28m contract that will complete in autumn 2019.
The novel design by architect Potter Church and Holmes has taken inspiration from the Rubik’s Cube, using innovative engineering to ensure coaches, cars and pedestrians are able to co-exist.
At a full capacity, the parking complex will accommodate up to 16,500 visitors for Wembley Stadium and the SSE Arena, Wembley, as well as the surrounding 85-acre development taking place at Wembley Park.
Coaches will be organised according to length, height and weight and when fully utilised the entire structure will be able to accommodate over 1,000 vehicles.
Matt Voyce, Executive Director (Construction) of Quintain, said: “We are very proud to be able to bring forward such a unique and innovative project at Wembley Park.
“Working closely with Huber, who has an excellent track record of delivering large scale parking solutions, we very much look forward to welcoming thousands of visitors to Europe’s first multi-storey coach parking complex.”Wembley to get Europe’s first multi-storey coach park, published in Construction Enquirer, Online 09-2018 (Download the PDF-format)
