Contractor appointed for Solihull multi-storey car parks
The Urban Growth Company (UGC) has appointed VINCI Construction UK as its design and build contractor for two major new multi-storey car parks on the outskirts of Solihull in the West Midlands.
The car parks will be adjacent to the new HS2 Interchange Station at the heart of emerging plans for Arden Cross, a new 140-hectare mixed-use destination comprising business, leisure, education, medical, technology and residential uses.
It is envisaged that between 4,500 and 7,000 multi-storey spaces will be provided which will be used by HS2 passengers and, over time, those visiting Arden Cross.
The 13-month contract marks the start of the UGC’s plan to deliver multi-storey car parking in time for the planned opening of HS2 between 2029 and 2033. It will see VINCI delivering a RIBA stage 3 design and seeking to secure full planning permission for one of the car parks and outline planning permission for a second.
