Within walking distance of the terminal another 2,600 attractive parking spaces in a six-storey car park were completed in July 2019.
Thus the fourth busiest airport in the UK increased the amount of available short-stay parking bays up to almost 7,000 at the Essex location.
Brian Connor, BAM’s Construction Director, said: “It’s been a very successful exercise in collaborative working. We spent a year in pre-construction with Stansted examining the right model to procure and build this scheme, choosing a system approach from HUBER.” HUBER’s managing director Tomer Meirom honored the excellent cooperation with the Main Contractor and the Client. He proudly looks back on a successful project.
More than 50 per cent of the 28 million passengers who use Stansted airport every year arrive or depart by public transport, but those who need to arrive by car now have convenient options to suit all budgets.
Four comfortable lifts serve all parking levels, one being built as a firefighting lift. Spiral ramps ensure a rapid flow of traffic in the multi-storey car park and avoid vehicles entering or leaving the building having to cover long distances within the building. This leads to a significant reduction in CO emissions in the building. A parking guidance system indicates free parking spaces on the respective levels.
Coloured markings on the sidewalks and in the stairwell area make it easier for users to distinguish between the various storeys. They also provide better orientation. Due to the enormous area of the parking levels, all parking rows are labeled accordingly.
