Award winning transformation of a 1960s car park into a modern facility

The refurbishment of the Civic Quarter Car Park in Doncaster to provide parking for the Civic and Cultural Quarter has transformed the car park from a neglected 1960s building into a high class modern facility that makes a positive contribution to the improved urban realm.

Potter and Holmes’ design simplified the entry/exit route to take advantage of the original grand entry portal, converted the ground floor from a bus station to car parking and incorporates parking management systems, access control and CCTV systems.

Enhanced facades, bold signage, careful use of colour, and improved lighting create a car park fit to be the gateway to the new Civic & Cultural Quarter.
