“Undertaking major construction works on a busy campus site where we average 3,500 employees on site daily and manage parking for up to 2000 cars requires planning and coordination…. The forward focus and planning… has been key to the success of the project. Vodafone have not received a single complaint from any person inconvenienced by the works or traffic, quite impressive when you think of the sheeramount of construction machinery required. Finally, thanks again, the professionalism by J Coffey has made my job and that of our FM team that manage this campus so much easier.” Tony Steele, Project Development Manager, 1team at Vodafone.

Following on from the success of Car Park 6 in 2015, Vodafone commissioned Car Park 7 to be built in the Vodafone ‘village’ at the Newbury campus.

This facility was slightly larger, with a new deck of 3,000m2 and 135 new parking bays created.

As before temporary link roads to adjacent car parks were considered in tandem with a considered logistics and traffic management plan to ensure that the ring roads at the campus could function properly despite the heavy construction plant, including craneage and concrete pumps.

During the progress of the works, Vodafone also instructed J Coffey to undertake extensive remedial repair work and recovering of previous car park decks which were built many years ago were and in varying states of disrepair and degradation.
