Q-Park car parks Mosae Forum in Maastricht and Spaarne Hospital in Hoofddorp received EPA Awards. The awards were presented on Thursday, September 27th, in Madrid during the biennial conference of the European Parking Association (EPA).
There were a total of 19 nominations in eight countries, divided into four categories. The jury chose a winner from each category. Q-Park was honoured twice, once for the Mosae Forum car park in Maastricht, in the category New Projects and once for the Spaarne Hospital car park in Hoofddorp in the category Special Projects.
Special design of Mosae ForumThe Q-Park Mosae Forum car park is located directly next to the Maas and twelve metres deep, below Maasboulevard in the historic centre of Maastricht. This four-storey underground car park is the largest in the city. Developed by 3W, designed by architect Jo Coenen and further developed by architect Mark Hermans, it is innovatively integrated into the modern shopping area of Mosae Forum. It has a luxury design, clear lighting and clean, shiny floors.
Unique collaboration with Spaarne HospitalThe Q-Park Spaarne Hospital car park is the result of a unique collaborative effort between Q-Park and the Spaarne Hospital. This car park is designed to provide practical features that meet the specific needs of hospital visitors. This includes wide and disabled parking spaces, wheelchairs, and special ticket machines at wheelchair height. The artistic design of the car park also creates added value. The aluminium outer walls are constructed to depict human DNA after nightfall.
