714 parking bays
At the same time the new building of University Campus Ruhr-West-Mülheim was finalized, the new 714-bay multi storey car park was completed. The modern, handicapped accessible building impresses with an expanded metal façade surrounding the entire car park as well as pre-fabricated concrete elements dyed in a stylish rusty red. The stainless steel handrails in the stair cases feature tactile lettering. The lower parking levels are also enclosed by the expanded metal façade. The mesh size of the expanded metal elements ensures the required natural cross ventilation. Due to the environmental situation at the site, the bottom slab had to be executed as a completely waterproof white tank. State-of-the-art LED light fixtures in combination with motion sensors provide sufficient lighting during dusk and dawn and warrant homogenous illumination throughout the entire car park. Marking of the parking bays was carried out in line with the university’s colour concept. The parking bays are numbered. When the car park is closed between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. rolling shutters effectively prevent access.
