Improved Aesthetics for Multi-Storey Car Parks, with EQC’s Quality Powder Coating

Multi-storey car park designs have long been in need of a facelift. Many of these structures were built in the 1960s and 1970s and over the years, they’ve weathered the elements and the passage of time, or there is simply a “bland-demic” in terms of innovative designs. But there’s hope on the horizon, an easy transformative solution using quality powder coated metal panels.

At EQC, we recognise the value of giving these structures a new lease of life. Our expertise in architectural metal coatings and powder coating has allowed us to bring a fresh, modern aesthetic to these aging giants.

In the UK, there are approximately 6,000 multi-storey car parks, and many of them are showing signs of age. The need for renovation and modernisation is evident, not just to enhance the visual design but also to improve structural integrity.

The wider global market for metal cladding is on a remarkable growth trajectory and leading design trends in rainscreen cladding and architectural metal coatings are driving innovation in the construction industry. Market research firm VMR values the rainscreen cladding market at over $10 billion worldwide, with expectations to reach over $16 billion by 2028. Additionally, architectural metal coatings are set to grow from approximately $5 billion today to just under $6 billion by 2026, according to analyst Research and Markets. This global trend showcases the increasing demand for high-quality, aesthetically pleasing solutions like powder coated metal panels.

There are some inspiring UK examples of design transformations as showcased by Epping Forest Council with their new Cottis Lane car park highlighting how these panels and use of extruded aluminium fins and sections can turn a car park into a vibrant, modern architectural design.

Powder coating offers multiple advantages to these design transformations, making it a top choice for new car park designs or rejuvenating aging multi-storey car park stock. Some of the key benefits include exceptional durability, enhanced protection against corrosion, UV light resistance and chemical resistance.

At EQC, we are committed to transforming multi-storey car parks into modern, vibrant spaces that meet the needs of today’s world. Powder coated metal panels and extrusions, with their durability, aesthetic appeal, and corrosion resistance, are at the forefront of this architectural revolution.
