Preston Bus Station MSCP
Designed in the late 60’s this 9 level multi-storey car park consisted of cast in situ reinforced concrete slabs and columns built in the ‘Brutalist Style’.
Each of the 9 parking decks is approximately 190m long and 16m wide with supporting columns inset from the slab edge providing 1169 parking bays.
This iconic structure is best known for its scalloped fins along the 190M length and was part of its saving glory when trying to obtain Grade II listing in September 2013. As was typical of the construction of the day no protective
coatings were applied to the inner concrete car park decks on levels 3 to 7 along with the external concrete ramps spanning 10.67m which are external at both north and south of thestructure.
The refurbishment aim was to fully restore and protect the iconic 1960s design whilst still in operation to the 10,000 people per day who used it. Bringing it into the 21st Century incorporated modern technology of EV bays and new lighting systems, providing a user friendly, fresh feel to the car park. This included preventative measures to include anti-suicide fencing to reduce the high suicide rate at Preston Bus Station.
