Eindhoven Airport’s new multifunctional parking building was opened on 1 October. The parking structure built by construction company BAM marks the first step in the transformation of the area in front of Eindhoven Airport into an attractive environment. The new multifunctional building provides space for 780 cars and includes cycle parking, a McDonald's drive-thru, and a bus station. P1 is located right across from the terminal building. Bolidt developed, produced and installed the car park flooring in the color scheme desired by the architect.
The P1 building was designed by local practice De Bever Architects. The architect chose a flowing form, matching the forms of the terminal and the adjacent Tulip Inn hotel. The design is, therefore, a perfect fit for the available space and multifunctionality of the building. For Eindhoven Airport, bringing P1 into operation is an important step in the development of the airport area. The upgrade is consistent with its strategy to drive a transition from quantity to quality. Eindhoven Airport thus moves in line with the surrounding Brainport region that invests in quality in various areas.
As in earlier car park construction projects, such as Vredenburg car park in Utrecht, contractor BAM worked together with Bolidt on P1 at Eindhoven Airport. Appreciated as a reliable and flexible partner, Bolidt shared its ideas on the best flooring solution for the four parking levels. The three lower levels were fitted with the widely used Boligrip 300 flooring system, which is resistant to high traffic loads. The top deck was covered with a flexible and watertight Bolidt floor finish in compliance with NEN 1062-7, because this deck is exposed to direct sunlight. The specialist installation was, as always, carried out by Bolidt’s own application teams.
The collaboration in Eindhoven ran smoothly, just like in Utrecht. By thoroughly thinking through the construction planning and design with BAM beforehand, the design of the flooring systems fits in perfectly with the color scheme of the rest of the multifunctional building. Today’s customers attach increasing value to this aspect and so does the owner of P1 in Eindhoven. Bolidt also successfully installed the floor finish in this car park recently. The owner, contractor and Bolidt are all committed to creating more attractive parking facilities, where users can park comfortably and feel safe. This emphasis on safety is also reflected in the flooring systems, by clear surface markings and the use of bright, fresh colors. The slip-resistant quality of the Boligrip systems also reduces the risk of drivers slipping when getting out of or into their vehicles. In short, a win-win situation for all involved.
Bolidt is the ultimate specialist in synthetic flooring for garage businesses. Bolidt understands that the automotive industry sets strict requirements for aspects such as assembly, maintenance, repairs, and sales. Garage owners require a floor that prevents environmentally-harmful substances such as petrol, oil, and diesel from permeating the substrate. Falling tools and high mechanical loads must not cause any problems either.
Bolidt has over 50 years' experience in the development, production, and application of synthetic flooring, and is a frequently sought-after partner for companies in the automotive industry worldwide. Garage businesses rely on Bolidt's innovative flooring because of its exceptional functional qualities such as high mechanical and chemical resistance, long service life, ease of maintenance and aesthetics.
