The addition of a new multi-level, parking garage consisted of an infill project bounded by existing buildings on three sides. The poured-in-place, post-tentioned structure incorporated a combination of precast concrete exterior panels with a thin brick facing and traditionally set masonry, to be compatible with the adjacent buildings. This garage is connected to the Galt House Hotel and the new YUM Center Arena by way of a structural glass pedway over Third Street. The project also required alteration of existing Galt House parking assets.
This parking structure is designed for 1,000 cars, providing space for students, faculty and the public at the eastern edge of the Belknap Campus. The project includes 15,000 SF of University office space and a bridge over the existing railroad from the upper deck.
