Pink Coach & Car Park at Wembley Park is Europe’s first multi-storey steel coach and car park.
Together with Quintain, Potter Church & Holmes HUBER won a double award in the Special Projects Award Category of the British Parking Awards 2020. We were revealed as a winner for the Special Engineering and the Public Art and Wayfinding Graphics at the ceremony on 6 March 2020 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
The £41 million project for Quintain as project developer was built in a period of 18 months. The complex consists of two parking levels for coaches, 290 parking bays, as well as a five-storey car park, 734 parking bays. At full capacity, it can accommodate up to 16,500 visitors. The suspended deck allows for the positioning of broadcasting vehicles for Wembley Stadium.
Safety and Technology
The Coach and Car Park is implemented with a 120-minute fire protection strategy: the steel construction of the coach parking area is enveloped by chambered concrete, which is highly effective in the construction of mobility hubs, and has a dedicated sprinkler system. An elaborate wayfinding system includes digital signage. Furthermore, there is a public address system and camera monitoring system throughout the complex.
The innovative technology installed assigns coaches to free parking bays according to their length and size. ANPR automatically registers all vehicles at all entrance and exit points.
Art Facades: Pride of Wembley
Inspired by Olympic pictograms, large simple silhouettes, lit up by pink LED tube lights, of stars renowned for their Wembley performances, decorate four of the ten stair core elevations.
