Eastside Car Park
The new car park to the Millennium Point in Birmingham by the city council is predominantly clad in pressed aluminium panels, with insulated panel, expanded aluminium, Perspex ‘light-boxes’ and aluminium rainscreen. Car park specialist Berry Systems Ltd approached Design Engine to help design and co-ordinate the supporting bracketry and interfaces between the different materials and suppliers.
The build sequence demanded that the bespoke aluminium panels, measuring 3.3x3.3m, were sited and fixed during the erection of the steel frame. The steel frame had been designed in association with Design Engine to have holes pre-drilled to accept the panel fixings.
