LevantaPark has won the contract to design car lifts and parking systems for the new $100-million Mercedes Benz ‘Autohaus’ project in Brisbane. The Autohaus facility will feature cutting-edge vehicle lift technology from LevantaPark. The world-class project will be the ideal showcase for LevantaPark’s advanced vehicle lifts.
Observing that the Mercedes Benz Autohaus project will be the first of its kind in Australia, LevantaPark Technical Consultant Daniel Parker said they are thrilled to be playing a part in such a significant new investment project for Brisbane.
To be built on the former Breakfast Creek Wharf site, the Autohaus will feature a full service Mercedes Benz dealership, service centre and museum, along with shops, restaurants and a riverside rooftop function centre. Five storeys of Mercedes Benz vehicles will be on display in the glass fronted facade of the impressive building. Construction of the new complex is underway with completion anticipated in July 2018.
The brief for LevantaPark sought a world-class solution for vehicle storage and access. LevantaPark will install two advanced vehicle lifts in the Autohaus. The first, a custom-designed hydraulically driven car elevator will quickly and safely transport cars, staff and members of the public. The car elevator will allow Mercedes’ clients to easily access any of the available vehicle range, from any floor of the building, and take the car for a test drive.
LevantaPark’s car lift system can take even the largest, heaviest vehicles in the Mercedes Benz range. With a remarkable travel distance of 23 metres and incorporating fire-rated entry and exit doors, it’s one of the first vehicle elevators of its kind in Australia.
The second car lift, a Rex Gold scissor lift system from the LevantaPark range, will transport vehicles between the ground floor and the museum in the building’s basement. Durability, reliability and ease-of-use were all factors that were central to Mercedes Benz’s choice of the Rex Gold system.
