Halifax Int'l Airport Parkade

Halifax Int'l Airport Parkade

The car park of this Canadian airport is covered with a architectural mesh, which coincides with "woven" concrete facades.


The 5-level, 2,300-space Parkade at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport features 1,900 public parking spaces and 400 spaces for rental cars.

The east and west facades of the car park are clad with a woven wire mesh facade (type DOGLA-TRIO 1010). 108 mesh elements covering an area exceeding 3,800 m² were fabricated by HAVER & BOECKER and shipped across the ocean to the Canadian province Nova Scotia. The standard length of the elements is 12,430 mm, the width is 3,040 mm.

The attachment system consists of flat tension profiles with clevis bolts. Additional tension springs allow for a consistent tensioning. For this projects the springs are added at the top in a less visible area of the facade.

A key feature of this car park is the combination of woven wire at the east and west facade with "woven" concrete at the north- and south elevations.
