CCG Architects was engaged by EW Edwards on a panel of consultants to provide professional services on the preparation of Design and Documentation for the project.
The scope of work was to provide 444 new car spaces for the existing commuters car park which has lead to the achievement outcomes of; being able to extend the Western at grade car park with an additional two (2) levels to the original MSCCP design, this has provided an additional 356 car spaces to the existing car spaces. The allowance in extending the original MSCCP design, No. 2 suspended slabs to the west has allowed an addition of 88 car spaces.
The extended car park is comprised of one ground level, one middle level and one roof parking level, where it has allowed two (2) new sets of stairs on the northern and southern sides of the extended car park to cater for the additional pedestrian demand. The use of similar materials and fabric from the existing stairs have been carried over to the additional stairs. The MSCCP is able to hold an additional 356 car parking spaces of class 1 type (2.4m wide by 5.4 long). Installation of new cladding around the extension to the car park was to match the existing cladding. The facility also has an additional 17 passenger lift located adjacent to the existing lift and also provides 50% or greater of natural ventilation to the structure. The addition of a new way finding signage is located at the MSCCP.
The project was completed by September 2017, and has provisions for future expansions with 2 additional levels above the new works.
