The Cardigan Street multi-storey car park is a key element of the Birmingham Eastside redevelopment and has a capacity of 975 cars. Berry Systems won seven of the cladding packages put out to tender by the main contractor Thomas Vale.
Following the original schematic design by Hill Cannon UK and Urban Design, and working closely with Ash & Lacy, we were able to supply and install over 1900sqm of custom rain screen cladding.
It was produced in a 3D geometric layout incorporating a number of blue acrylic ‘lightpod’ sections. These not only provide a colour contrast with the silver anodised clarking cladding, but also allow interior light from the car park to create a stunning effect from the external view.
The main external cladding was completed by the use of expanded metal aluminium screen on the ground floor and the Kingspan wall system to part of two elevations.
Our system delivers superior off-road protection that is tested in accordance with BS EN 1991-1-1. This is to ensure vehicles in car parks have sufficient edge protection.
We also installed our handrail and mesh to increase pedestrian protection, meeting the 1100m height from the finished floor level in line with current building requirements.
