Manchester University’s 8-storey Car Park was built as part of a new swimming pool complex for the Commonwealth Games in 2002.
Stereo-3 grating panels with a 63x132mm mesh were used to clad the four sides of the concrete structure, providing light and ventilation, and to secure the openings within the prominent stair towers.
The panels were set into 100x65mm angle frames and covered a total area of 3165 sqm.
The grating panels were galvanised and polyester powder coated, featuring a distinctive, contrasting colour for the panel frames.
The design was developed by Lang+Fulton in conjunction with FaulknerBrown Architects.
