Caunton Engineering designed, supplied and erected the structural steelwork for a 730-space multi-storey car park (MSCP) in the centre of Stoke-on-Trent. The car park comprises a ground and six upper floors.
The company was working on behalf of main contractor Willmott Dixon Construction. Caunton supplied approximately 1,000 tonnes of steelwork as well as installing metal decking and PC stairs and lift shafts.
Located adjacent to Potteries Way, the MSCP forms part of the wider Smithfield development, a £300M joint venture between developer Genr8 and Stoke-on-Trent City Council, which aims to create a new mixed-use district in the city. Work on the MSCP is programmed to be completed in the third quarter of 2022 and is being funded by the city council, which will be responsible for operating the facility when it opens.
