This unique parking deck made use of Speedfloor Suspended Concrete Flooring to create a lightweight, open structure. Surrounding the carpark are light concrete planter boxes, giving the car park a ‘green’ connection.
A lack of parking spaces led this developer to consider a unique parking deck solution that required limiting the number of columns and future-proofing his space.
The cost-effective steel frame on this one level parking deck uses long-spanning custom welded beams with Speedfloor Suspended Concrete Flooring to form a lightweight open structure. The tapered beams form a cantilever that supports a perimeter guard rail and a lightweight concrete planter box, producing a strong ‘green’ connection. The 6 columns supporting the 470 square metre deck offered versatility to the position of the entry and exit on the footprint.
