The exterior cladding on the new Banbury Station car park in Oxfordshire has been designed to help the building blend into its environment and was installed by car park specialists Berry Systems. The number of passengers using the station doubled between 2003 and 2011 making additional car park capacity a major priority for Chiltern Railways.
McNaughton Architects reduced the impact on the local environment by specifying Glass Sto Panels for the exterior cladding. This means that the residential properties opposite the car park are reflected on the walls of the street framed, four-storey structure. This helps blend into the neighbourhood rather than stand out against it.
Berry Systems formed part of the design team for this, together with McNaughton and the main contractors, Osbourne. Hill Cannon designed the superstructure and was erected by James Killelea & Co Ltd. As well as the Sto Panels, Berry Systems also supplied and installed the capping panels, soffits, internal perforated metal infill panels, access gate, security mesh and safety barriers. These barriers consisted of RB1 buffers supporting a Berry Beam barrier, anti-climb mesh and integral pedestrian handrail.
