Fitzgerald (Civil Engineer Contractors)

Car Parks

We have extensive experience in providing car parking facilities for both public and private sector clients.

Alexandra Hospital

£1.1 million

This scheme involved the construction of a new car park, welfare building and waste compound along with alterations to the existing car parks and footways and the diversion of a water main.

This involved undertaking all of the civil engineering aspects in addition to coordinating the utility services into the welfare building along with project management of several subcontract work packages including the building works, M&E services along with street lighting and staff access barriers, fencing, soft landscaping, surfacing and road markings.

This was a particularly challenging environment as the works were undertaken in a live hospital environment that required close lisaison with the hospital estates department to ensure we mitigated disruption and ensured the safety of the visiting public and staff. This was achieved by using a designated vehicle access route and clearly defined pedestrian routes and protection measures to stop encroachment into the work areas.

Birstall Park and Ride

£1 million

This scheme involved the construction of new 1,000 space park and ride facility along with a new bus lane and traffic signalled junction.

Delivered in partnership with Tarmac National Contracting our role was to undertake all of the civil engineering works. This included kerbing, drainage, hard and soft landscaping, ducting for the services into a bus station building and the communication systems including CCTV, ANPR and access/egress barriers.

West Midlands Police Central Traffic Unit Car Park

£246,000

The scheme involved the reconstruction and resurfacing of the main car park for the West Midlands Police at the Central Traffic Complex at Aston.

To maintain programme and continuity of work, details of all daily deliveries were provided to on-site security personnel to enable them to monitor all site movements and minimise the potential of encroachment by unexpected visitors.

One of the challenges associated with the works was working in a “live” environment. This involved extensive liaison with the complex Fleet Manager to enable us to phase the works and minimise disruption to the operation of the facility. The works were undertaken in four distinct phases enabling access to be maintained whilst mitigating all possible impacts to the safe delivery of the works programme.

Enderby Park and Ride

£1.4 million

The scheme was delivered in partnership with Tarmac National Contracting and our package of works involved the civil engineering package as part of the construction of a 1,000 space car park that was delivered as part of the Midlands Highway Alliance Medium Schemes Framework Contract.

Our works involved the civil engineering aspects of the scheme and included the installation of an extensive sustainable drainage system (SuDS), hard landscaping in the car parking areas, installation of rainwater storage tanks and the creation of a balancing pond.

In addition to preventing potential flooding, the balancing pond has created the additional benefit of providing wildlife habitats.
