563 parking bays
Since 24 March 2018 a new traffic solution for long distance travellers has been in operation east of the main station in Leipzig. It enables the combined use of private and public transportation. Beside the covered platforms for long distance coaches inside the bus terminal with comfortable boarding and debarking facilities, the proximity to the main train station is a definite bonus. The terminal also integrates car rental facilities and offers 563 parking bays in a multi-storey car park erected in composite steel construction.
This split-level car park was built by HUBER on behalf of the construction enterprise GP Papenburg Hochbau GmbH NL Ost and extends from level 3 to level 8. Parking levels 1 and 2 are accessible by long ramps, which were part of Papenburg’s contract. HUBER’s contract comprised execution of the park deck floors, the steel frame construction as well as the façade.
The special layout of the Z-profiles of this extraordinary façade lends the building an appealing look. To achieve this attractive appearance the vertical storey-high profiles were installed at differing angles. Despite the façade, sufficient crosswise ventilation is warranted thanks to the open building method.
