As part of the strategic realignment of public transport in the city of Algiers, studies were made of 46 locations deemed to be suitable for parking facilities. For 6 particularly urgent projects, an international planning competition was tendered in advance. AMP, in collaboration with the Algerian planning office SAETI, won the contract for a total of 3 of the outlined locations.
After 6 years of construction, the first project to be completed in spring 2018 was the El Biar multi-storey car park.
It offers a total of 835 parking spaces on 7 levels. Situated on the ground floor is a bus station with 7 bus platforms and a café on the roof, with offices in the basement area.
The façade consists of individual, inclined glass slats, which ensure natural ventilation of the parking levels and a generous amount of daylight.
The 2.50 m wide parking spaces are user-friendly, positioned at an angle of 75 ° and the spaces are column-free despite sitting in the highest level earthquake zone.
