Union Square Car Park featuring Colorcoat FD™25 Soffit
Union Square in Aberdeen is an exciting £250 million retail-led regeneration project, housing more than 60 shops, 12 restaurants, a hotel and a 10-screen 2,300 seat cinema. An integral part of the development was the construction of the 200,000 sq. ft. car park.
With spaces for 1,700 vehicles, the car park has been designed and constructed to accommodate a large volume of traffic movement.
As part of the new build programme, 40,000 m2 of ComFlor® 80 with Colorcoat FD™25 was specified.
ComFlor® 80 is a shallow composite floor profile that can create typical unpropped spans of 4.4 m simply supported and, in the continuous condition, spans of 5.1 m can be achieved.
This results in less structural steel being required and has the added benefit of providing significant savings to the overall construction cost.
The ComFlor® 80 soffit is pre-finished with Colorcoat FD™25 in white, eliminating the need for costly post-painting, and creating an aesthetically appealing uniform finish which has allowed the soffit to be used as a feature of the car park. The performance of the Colorcoat FD™25 soffit on this project is guaranteed for 10 years.
