Raised deck car park complete

The design and build of a new 126-space raised deck car park in Doncaster for retailer, Next, is complete. Metpark UK worked in partnership with sister flooring contractor, Raised Floor Solutions, to deliver the scheme.

The car park project involved the design and construction of a single storey car park at Next’s distribution centre in Redhouse. The new parking facility was constructed above an existing surface level staff car park.

MetparkUK designed the car park solution and integrated with the client’s design and planning teams to submit and secure local authority permission for the build.

Work on site commenced in July this year with a steel frame installed above the existing car park. Raised Floor Solutions, an approved Kingspan Multideck contractor, supplied and installed metal floor decking across the new first floor. Kingspan Multideck MD80XP with engineered ends was specified, a high performance solution frequently specified for car park construction.

The concrete contractor division within Raised Floor cast a concrete slab on to the metal deck, reinforced with steel mesh to complete the construction of a composite concrete floor system.

Raised Floor installed crash barriers and elastomeric toppings and markings, providing a waterproof solution that benefits from a 10-year guarantee. LED and soffit lighting, drainage systems and external staircases were also specified for the scheme.

About Kingspan XP metal floor deck

Kingspan XP is a type of metal floor deck offering enhanced corrosion protection. The deck is manufactured with Magnelis®, a metallic coating comprising zinc, aluminium and magnesium. XP provides steel with up to three times more corrosion protection in an outdoor setting than standard galvanisation alone.

About Metal floor deck with engineered ends

Metal floor decking with ‘engineered ends’ adds even greater speed and efficiency to the construction of composite concrete floor systems.

The end of the steel deck profile is folded and pressed during manufacture to form a slope. This eliminates the need to manually place end caps over the end of each metal deck profile once it’s installed. The substantial reduction in labour results in greater time and cost efficiencies in the build programme.

Engineered ends means a greater volume of concrete comes into contact with the steel beams and shear studs. This improves the overall composite action and the performance of the steel frame. It also reduces the volume of grout loss during the casting of the composite concrete slab, and staining on the steel frame and paint coatings.
