Caunton Engineering were pleased to have worked for main contractor Willmott Dixon on the important new City of Lincoln Transport Hub. This £30m scheme is a significant regeneration project that will transform the city centre of Lincoln - providing a state-of-the-art bus station, retail space, a new pedestrian plaza and a one thousand space multi-storey car park. Caunton supplied and erected the structural steelwork, on a design and build contract, for this multi-storey car park.
The company’s technical team designed the steelwork frame, and the company fabricated and erected nearly 1000te of structural steelwork. The frame supports pre-cast concrete slabs which, in the interests of speedy construction, were erected by Caunton alongside the steelwork.
The car park was originally going to be a precast concrete structure but we changed to a steel-framed solution because steel offered cost and speed of construction benefits
