Manchester airport is currently undergoing a £1 billion redevelopment. This includes the build of a new multi-storey car park for terminal 2. Since the initial redevelopment design, the airport discovered they needed to build a 3,800 space car park, over 9 stories, because so many spaces are being lost to the redevelopment of the airfield.
Creagh supplied the flooring for the car park in the form of 400mm deep hollowcore planks (weighing 9.5 tonnes each), despatched over 1500 loads. The hollowcore will cover approximately 80,000m2.
The Hollowcore slabs are being installed on Laing O’Rourke’s structural frame which consists of structural concrete columns and delta beam spanning 15.6m in width.
The frame is being installed by 6 tower cranes working simultaneously erecting 6 different phases to construct the one car park.
