USLs Quality Workmanship Plays A Part In New Bailey Car Park Award

The NCP operated New Bailey Car Park in Salford has recently won a special Architectural Award at the BPA's prestigious annual ceremony in London. And USL are delighted to have installed 2150m2 of protective coatings which equates to 620 car parking spaces!
The award was presented to English Cities Fund for their New Bailey car park in Salford. This striking building is the lead structure in a new urban quarter. The colourful façade is designed to look as if the building is wrapped in ribbons. One corner of the car park also features a spire that is an architectural nod to Salford Cathedral.

As part of the on-going regeneration work on-going in Salford, The New Bailey development has already seen the successful completion of a 143-bed Premier Inn and plans are in place for a new 8-storey office, dubbed One New Bailey.

This purpose built flagship multi-storey car park features a number of benefits for customers. These include state of the art larger and quicker lifts, energy efficient LED lighting and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR). The online booking service includes pre booking facilities and level monitoring communicates to drivers which levels have available parking spaces. There are also direct links to the NCP customer contact centre via a number of help points throughout the car park, as well as 27 CCTV cameras for increased safety and six charging spaces for electric cars.

Protective coatings

USL were engaged by Main Contractor Morgan Sindall, who have worked with the StructureCare team on a number of previous projects. As an approved installer of various differing deck coating systems, USL were ultimately preferred due to their track record of completing projects on time and on budget, ensuring a quality finish and attention to detail post-completion. USL installed the NCP-specified Triflex ProDeck system to the steel frame and precast plank structure.

Richard Tasker, Director at USL commented "it was a pleasure to work with Morgan Sindall once again, and whilst we were a relatively 'small cog in a large wheel' at Salford New Bailey, our efforts have nonetheless been recognised in what is a quality finish and attention to detail workmanship wise. We are an approved installer of various different deck coating systems including our own, and now market leading DeckProtect+ range, however we recognise that every car park structure is different, and will therefore look to recommend what we feel to be the most appropriate and functional system each time".
