Multistorey Carpark, Orchard Street, Crawley, W. Sussex

This paper describes the design and construction of a carpark for the Council of the Borough of Crawley, W Sussex. The structure is not notable for any ground-breaking originality but, in the designers’opinion, it demonstrates ingenuity in exploiting material properties in the pursuit of the client's expressed wishes.
