Design recommendations for multi-storey and underground car parks. 4th edition
Offers design guidance for car park design and construction and complements existing standards and codes of practice. Relates to the key areas of design in increasing detail based on three main stages: Agreement of the design scope and considerations necessary for general layout design and planning, Structural considerations and issues related to the development of the structural form, framing and use of space and finally Design details and specific measures that can be used to enhance durability. The report retains those parts of previous editions that were found to be of significant value and are still current, while updating other areas in the light of recent developments, design feedback and advice from operators.
Supersedes 3rd edition 2002.
