Operations Manager Peter Mattimore says he’s proud of the lengths Maple reached to make our Victoria Square car park project a success.

 
We installed more than 30 miles of vertical fins on the new Woking multi-storey in a complex project that demonstrated a wide range of Maple’s façade products and capabilities. But it was the things the public won’t see that impressed Peter most. 

He said: “The tight, city-centre site presented significant logistical challenges, which Maple overcame. The completed structure demonstrates our ability to provide a fully tailored service in a challenging environment.”

A total of 500 lengths of aluminium fins, powder-coated in four shades of black and grey, encircle each of the building’s 45m metre high car ramp towers – making it one of Maple’s largest ever projects of that type. 

The fins were created using modern methods of construction - pre-assembled as cassettes in our factory to make installation more efficient and reduce time spent working at height on the new multi-storey. Peter added: “The modular approach was particularly important as the build programme required us to install part of the façade above a completed glass roof.”

As well as the fins, we supplied and installed rainscreen cladding to the stair core, perforated panels on a bridge linking the car park to a neighbouring hotel, and ferruled mesh panels across the project.

The range of Maple products used and the overall complexity of the project required close collaboration with main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine, as well as diligent project management onsite, in our Stockport factory and with third-party suppliers.

The car park is part of the £540m transformation of Woking town centre, which will also include two 30-storey-plus residential towers, the aforementioned hotel, commercial space, medical centre and public plazas.
