Steel provides the answer for hospital car park

Posted on by in News

Steelwork erection is scheduled to start this month for a new £8M multi-storey car park at Basildon University Hospital in Essex.

Working on behalf of Thurrock Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, main contractor Geoffrey Osborne said the structure, containing 1,600 spaces, along with all associated roadworks, will be complete by early 2008.

Robin Sharples, Technical Director of steelwork contractor SIAC Tetbury Steel, says the structure is of a composite design with pre-cast floors and 850t of structural steelwork.

“The grid pattern throughout the car park is 16m x 7.2m and all steel is galvanised,” added Mr Sharples.

SIAC Tetbury will be erecting predominantly 305mm x 305mm UC’s and 610mm x 305mm  UB’s throughout the car park.
