Multi-Storey Car Parks
There are well over 4,000 multi-storey car parks across the UK, almost all of which have been built since the 1940’s, with a boom in their construction during the 1960’s. Most of these were built from reinforced concrete and were designed to now outdated building regulations, many of which with a history of early deterioration. The problems incurred with such structures can be attributed to a number of factors; commonly inadequate design or construction, long-term neglect, poorly executed or a lack of prior maintenance works, or a detrimental surrounding environment.
