Bourne Parking reaches a century of car parks
Bourne Parking (part of the Bourne Group) is currently constructing its 100th car park since the turn of the century.
The Commons multi-storey car park in Hatfield town centre is a four-level structure containing 420 spaces.
Working as main contractor, undertaking all design aspects including steelwork design and erection on behalf of Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, Bourne Parking required 400t of steel for the project.
Bourne Parking Managing Director Karl Butters said: “This is our landmark 100th car park constructed this century and it still amazes me and makes me feel immensely proud when I see the speed of erection of our bespoke steel and precast system build.
“The frame and floor erection commenced on 7 September 2020 and was completed on 5 November 2020. That’s 420 spaces constructed in under two months!! A fantastic achievement on a very tight site surrounded by live vehicle and pedestrian routes.”
