John Lewis MSCP, Exeter – Tremco
Refurbishment of John Lewis Exeter car park
TREMCO MMA Rapid Cure Internal Decking System, MMA Rapid Cure Waterproofing System & CP470
Exeter City Council
Matrix Solutions won the contract for the refurbishment and rebranding of the car park based on a value engineered solution using high-performance TREMCO systems.
The systems were tailored to meet the different requirements of various parts of the structure in high-demand areas such as the spiral ramps. A crushed basalt aggregate was used to meet the increased wear and traction demands. On the roof decks an elastomericcrack-bridging system was used to meet the demands of thermal and other cyclic movement. CP470 was applied to soffits to improve light levels and provide an effective anti-carbonation treatment to prevent concrete degradation.
The works were part of a package of measures to upgrade the car park to maximise usage through its location as the most convenient parking for the flagship John Lewis store for which it has been re-branded to serve.
This project was named “Best Car Park Refurbishment of the Year” and overall winner at the British Parking Awards.
