Q-Park is an international parking company with good to strong market positions in many European countries. Q-Park is committed to provide customers with good looking, safe and well-lit parking facilities. They are designed for easy parking with well defined and spacious parking bays. Sika systems were used in 2 carparks of Q-Park: Tallaght Cross Q-Park(Belgard Square East, Tallaght, Dublin) and Q-Park Clerys Car Park ( Marlborough Street, Dublin).
Q-Park Clerys Car Park was an extensive refurbishment project for Q-Park. Deteriorated concrete structure throughout the building including the decks needed to be repaired. Floors and walls were to be repainted to provide a protective, decorative and durable surface. The Tallaght Cross Q-Park was a new construction.
First of all, Sika systems are the coatings of choice for all the Q-Park throughout Ireland.
Q-Park Clerys Car Park: deteriorated concrete was repaired using Sika® concrete repair mortars and decks were made good with Sika® levelling Mortar. 12,000 square meters if intermediate decks were finished with Sikafloor® 358, a tough, elastic, coloured epoxy deck was levelled and finished with Sikafloor® 350 flexible decking system. All floor and wall coating systems were applied by Epowit flooring contractors to provide a decorative, protective finish that will ensure the future integrity and extend the life of the structure.
Tallaght Cross Q-Park: it was completed in two phases (three levels each phase) with 80,000 square meters of Sikafloor®-263 intermediate deck coating being applied by the McLoughlin Group. They also applied 100,000 square meters of Sikagard® Elastocolor W to the walls, columns and soffits.
The following Sika products were used in the project
- Sikafloor® 358
