This $20-million parking structure with an architectural cast-in-place staircase is the second design-build parking structure project the Bomel/IPD team has successfully completed on the campus in the last five years.
Some of the major challenges of the project included the relocation of Folino Drive, which is a major traffic artery through the campus, to wrap around the south and east sides of the structure in order to mitigate congestion during construction.
LED lighting was also utilized for reduced energy usage and the structure was designed with the intent of installing photovoltaic panels on the roof deck at a later date.
The six-level, 1,501-stall cast-in-place concrete structure also features a parking information center where patrons can get campus directions and purchase parking passes alongside a pedestrian plaza with outdoor seating for students and faculty. The structure features a spiral concrete staircase that gives pedestrians views into the east side of the campus.
