A 14 deck reinforced concrete multi-storey car park constructed in 1981 owned and operated by Chesterfield Borough Council.
The car park was suffering from defective masonry cladding that had cracked due to a lack of adequate movement joints.
It was therefore proposed to rebuild and repair defective areas of masonry, including the external skin of the parapet wall, and to introduce new movement joints.
Bersche-Rolt successfully tendered for the contract and commenced work in February 2019.
Work included the taking down and rebuilding of the parapet walls (230 m2) and renewal of the coping (164 lm), the installation of new movement joints (258 lm), the installation of remedial wall ties, crack stitching (339 No.) and general brickwork and masonry repairs.
Client representative Robert Moss commented, “We were very pleased with the quality of the work undertaken by Bersche-Rolt, also the running and organisation of the site that was within a live multi-storey car-park, the operation of which was maintained throughout with a minimum of disruption.”
