The new car park adjoins the newly Martin & Ollmann designed entry building, it provides an additional 900 car spaces to the campus.
The multideck car park has distinct design features including concrete blades and steel mesh, with a light ribbon illuminating the pathway for guests to the new entry building. The design is in response to the proximity of the building to the surrounding bushland. The concrete blades create a barrier and are orientated to shield parked vehicles from the severe heat predicted in the event of an extreme bushfire. The crimsafe mesh which is main material used on the façade has a 70% airflow, this double acts as a shield against flying embers and full height balustrade.
Due to the high permeability of the façade design, there is no need for a mechanical ventilation system. The car park requires nominal maintenance, surrounding landscaping specified native vegetation hence requiring no additional care.
