NCP is celebrating after its New Bailey car park in Salford was awarded a special Architectural Achievement Award at the 2016 British Parking Awards.
The 620 space, nine storey car park is a key part of English Cities Fund’s New Bailey scheme in Salford, a mix of commercial, retail and leisure space revitalising the area.
NCP’s design and technical services team worked closely with the developers to deliver a state-of-the-art car park: from planning, design and construction to its operation and management.
Key to the brief was that it not only provides premium quality, customer focused parking but also contributes to the built environment and is reflective of the quality of the scheme’s future developments.
The car park moves away from preconceived car park architecture; instead offering a bright and colourful layered facade that offers plenty of natural light and ventilation. This innovative facade makes the car park look as if it’s been wrapped in ribbons. One corner of the car park also features a spire that is an architectural nod to Salford Cathedral.
Phil Mayall, development director at ECf, said:
We are incredibly proud to see New Bailey recognised at the BPA awards. Salford New Bailey was designed to sit well within the surroundings of the wider New Bailey commercial scheme, providing a sustainable car park that utilised the latest technologies and serving a variety of parking needs. Through its experience across the parking landscape, NCP provided invaluable input into the design, functionality and customer journey to help deliver value for money and an exceptional user experience.
