The Forum is part of the University of Hertfordshire’s £33 million development and is one of the UK’s largest, purpose-built student entertainment facilities. As part of the University wide initiative to promote access for students and provide better facilities for staff, the new multi-storey car park forms one part of this project and the University’s wider estate improvements.
While essentially utilitarian in nature, the car park has been carefully ‘dressed’ to provide an attractive and dynamic frontage to the new primary vehicle entrance onto the campus. The subtle back-lit polycarbonate and aluminium skin integrates University branding in addition to provide the necessary acoustic attenuation for neighbouring communities.
