Donegal Quay Car Park is located off the A2 Belfast Road, adjacent to the River Lagan. The structure comprises nine levels above ground floor and is constructed from in-situ concrete beams and columns with precast concrete slab panels over forming the floors. A reinforced concrete screed has been cast over the precast panels. The main structural frame of the car park displayed structural cracking and evidence of overstressing. Of concern was the flexural and shear cracking identified on the columns within the central atrium.
