Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, Multi-Storey Car ParkBAA
The multi-storey car park at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 provides 3,800 parking spaces as well as a bus station, valet parking and facilities for motor cycles. It is arranged over 6 levels and includes state-of-the-art parking recognition technology.
As part of the overall T5 development, the quality of design, materials and finishes were of paramount importance in the evolution of the project. Perceived as the passengers' departing or arriving gateway, specific design elements and finishes have been extended from the main terminal building in to the car park to deliver a high quality environment and enhance the passenger experience.
The approach ramps leading up to the departures forecourt at Level 6, glide over slender concrete columns, seeming to defy the rules of gravity. Bridge links cross a 30m wide canyon in to the terminal building and connect to a new hotel on the opposite side.Value: £120m
