MLM provided civil and substructure design for Europe’s first multi-storey ‘pink’ coach park, at Wembley Stadium.

Working for Huber Car Park Systems and subsequently novated to O’Keefe, we developed substructure and civils design from Stage 3 onwards.

The technical challenges faced included the design and approval of significant transfer structures over a large diameter Thames Water Sewer and design and approval of structures abutting an existing bridge carrying South Way over a disused railway cutting.

MLM’s environmental and rail teams have provided additional support in respect of contaminated land issues and liaison with Network Rail.

We collaborate well with designers and suppliers based in the UK, Holland and Germany to coordinate piling, reinforced concrete substructure and the steel (main frame) and precast concrete (staircases) superstructure elements, to ensure that all the prefabricated components fit together.

We used Tekla’s Bimsight software to provide design intent and then review, comment on and approve the 3D reinforcement details. Due to the complex anchorage details for the steel and precast superstructure elements, a conventional 2D approach to reinforcement detailing would have taken far longer and risked more site errors.
