Sika project is crowned best refurb at British Parking Awards 2015

A Bedford car park refurbishment project using high performance decking systems from Sika has picked up the Best Car Park Refurbishment Award at the British Parking Awards 2015.

Now in its 14th year, the prestigious awards were hosted by television presenter and Paralympic wheelchair basketball player Ade Adepitan at the Lancaster Hotel on Friday 6th March.  Recognising and rewarding leading examples of car park management, enforcement, design and team work, the event’s fifteen categories were contested by more than 60 entrants - including two refurbishments using products and systems from global building product manufacturer, Sika.

In the Best Car Park Refurbishment category, two Sika projects were shortlisted - AllHallows MSCP in Bedford and The Merrion Centre Car Park in Leeds.  On the day, Makers Construction in partnership with Bedford Borough Council took home the prize for their exceptional renovation of AllHallows MSCP.

Part of a regeneration project to improve Bedford bus station and a gateway to the town centre, the multi-million refurbishment of Allhallows multi-storey car park saw Sika as a single source supply for concrete repairs, corrosion management and both deck and soffit coatings - giving the car park a brand new lease of life and making the area more presentable to the town‘s visitors.

Shortlisted in the Best Car Park Refurbishment category, The Merrion Centre Car Park has been transformed into the most modern and technologically advanced car park in Leeds by Makers Construction Ltd with Sika providing a range of concrete repair, structural strengthening and corrosion management systems during a major refurbishment of the 950 space multi-storey car park.

With two projects shortlisted at one of the parking industry’s most prestigious events, Sika has further enhanced its reputation for the manufacture and supply of market leading car park decking systems, concrete repair and protection products and corrosion inhibitors that set the very highest standards.
