The new multi-storey car park in Lower Kings Road, Berkhamsted is continuing to take shape with the installation of the development’s central bracing sections.
Nearly 100 tonnes of the steel package have been completed so works has now moved onto assembly of the precast restraining walls.
The steel frame for levels 3, 5 and 7 are also being put in place with a 130-tonne crane lifting the heaviest elements, thought to weight more than nine tonnes.
Other work planned for the coming weeks includes the installation of decking which will be covered in waterproof concrete while the system infrastructure should also be laid.
Measures to enhance the appearance of the car park will also be installed including the incorporation of brick slip systems for precast elements as well as timber rails, a green wall and meshed panelling.
In an update provided to Berkhamsted Town Council, Huber, who are carrying out the work, said they are pleased with progress.
The update reads: “Our team at Berkhamsted are looking forward to delivering this bespoke system tailored to the local surroundings with the aim of providing a key service to easing the parking congestion for local business as well as the community.
The new car park is expected to open in February 2020.
