Following the merger of Glaxco Pharmaceuticals and the Wellcome Foundation, the decision was taken to build a multi-level car park in the south-eastern corner of the site at Stockley Park Middlesex.
From the start, the emphasis was on combining aesthetics with functionality and on future developments and needs. Yeoman and Edwards were appointed as project and costs managers by Glaxo Wellcome to lead this fast track project. Structural design was by Anthony Hunt Associates with Thompson Design responsible for the overall project design, which was sympathetic to the existing buildings on site. To ensure the project met its fast track requirement, hollowcore was chosen for the parking deck and Tarmac Topfloor supplied 5000sq.m of hollowcore floor slabs 110mm deep and 1200mm wide for the four-storey structure. The slabs were given an in-situ structural screed by main contractor Try Construction Ltd.
