The Intermountain Chapter of the American Concrete Institute recognized our work on the University of Utah Northwest Parking Garage with the 2016 Excellence in Concrete Award.
This well-designed, aesthetically appealing and state-of-the-art parking structure is a 5-level concrete-based parking facility located on the University of Utah campus. Located just East of Presidents Circle and slightly South of the Frederick Sutton Geology Building, the new structure nicely complements the existing buildings and surrounding landscape.
The structure replaced an old weather-exposed parking lot that barely allowed for 110 vehicles with a new eye-pleasing structure protecting patrons from the elements and accommodating approximately 500 visitors – an almost 500% increase in utilization using the same real estate footprint.
The University of Utah has commented that this structure is now the “Standard for Parking Garages at The U”.
It is neatly surrounded by buildings on 3 sides with a roadway on the north perimeter.
Access to parking east of the building had to remain open during the duration of the project, which was made possible by tightly coordinated partnering and planning with the owner.
