Type of works: supply of Wohrs Combilift 551, an independent parking solution.
This residential project in Bristol has created 49 contemporary apartments in a building originally built in 1865. The developer required an independent parking solution to increase the number of spaces that could be offered to potential buyers.
Due to structural constraints, no pits could be excavated but some additional headroom was available. The structural steel grid of the parking system effectively sits behind the large brick pillars in the basement parking area.
Utilising a Combilift 551 (two-level) semi-automatic system, an additional 24 parking spaces have been provided, only 9 could be created conventionally, making full use of the available space and headroom. Combilifts utilise lateral sliding and vertical stacking technologies.
