Metpark, the specialist car park contractor division, has achieved planning permission for a new raised deck car park on behalf of Meggitt Avionics in Fareham.
The planning application was compiled and submitted by Metpark as part of a complete car park design and build contract awarded last November by the expert aerospace engineering business.
Meggitt required a cost effective and time efficient parking solution within its existing site to accommodate an influx of staff relocating from other offices.
Metpark, working with its structural engineers and architects, designed a new raised deck car park level that could be sited above an existing surface car park adding a further 63 spaces.
Metpark organised feasibility studies, tree reports, highway reports, ground investigation surveys and topography surveys to submit as part of the planning application.
Work on the build will commence in Summer this year for 16 weeks. Metpark is providing all elements of the build including steel frame, composite car park deck, reinforced concrete floor slabs, steel access staircases, crash barriers, electrical lighting, waterproof toppings and bay marking.
Says Raised Floor Solutions Managing Director, Graham Hewitt, “We are a recognised specialist in the supply of composite concrete flooring for multi-storey car parks and are frequently asked to provide a complete car park design and build package.
“We have the knowledge, experience, capabilities and contacts to deliver this service to our customers and it is an area of substantial growth within our business. We’re excited to be able to dedicate the team and resources to continue its success,” he adds.
