Precast Value €3.7M
Onsite Duration 16 weeks

This car park is formed almost entirely by exposed precast concrete, it has a footprint of 147m by 35m and a capacity of over 1000 car parking spaces. Its 4 stories are connected by 6 internal stair cores and 2 external curved ramps.


Oran Pre-Cast made full use of its product range to deliver a total precast solution.


Key design and detailing features include:

  • Clear spans of up to 16m.

  • 2 external curved ramps.

  • Bespoke beam profiles.

  • Full height (4 storey) columns.


In addition to the speed of construction, the extent of precast allowed for immediate site access minimising the temporary works requirements. The high quality of precast surfaces allowed a sleek finish without plastering, the staircore walls were left ready to paint. The exposed precast elements required minimum post-installation treatment, and its ‘as is’ appearance stands tall architecturally.
