Project: Stockport Exchange Multi Storey Car Park
Client: Morgan Sindall
Stockport Exchange Multi Storey Car Park encompasses some 1,000 spaces and sits immediately next to the mainline train station, providing enhanced parking facilities for rail commuters and cyclists. The car park supports the new commercial district which is being developed as part of the £145 million regeneration project by Stockport Council and Muse Developments.
The £145m gateway site links the railway station and the retail core of the town centre. The masterplan vision creates a new central business district within the town, enabling Stockport to offer Grade A space in a highly sustainable central location.
Phase One consisted of a new 1,000 space multi-storey car park and a range of highway improvements. Phase Three includes additional office buildings, extension of the open space and further improved accessibility for pedestrians, and will be delivered on a phased basis up to 2020.
The scheme will ultimately deliver up to 370,000 sq ft of offices, along with attractive public spaces outside the railway station, improved car parking facilities and a wide range of cafes and shops at ground floor.
A full programme of M&E works where delivered across a 20 week period. Electrical works included the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the main and sub main distribution system.
The team installed all internal, external and emergency lighting as well as external signage. A state of the art CCTV system was installed across the site, alongside a number of pay station machines, linking back to the central control unit located in the administration office. Several electronic barriers, intercom systems and help points were also introduced as were two 13 person (1000kg capacity) passenger lifts with fast-acting centrally opening door.
“It’s great to be part of the wider team that has helped provide an essential part of the new transport infrastructure that ultimately helped bring this scheme to life.Steve Crosthwaite, Commercial Director of Genlec
“The site required a full M&E installation delivered within a relatively tight timeframe, once again on time and within budget.”
