Apogee was tasked to provide full design services to construct a new parking garage at the Oklahoma City VAMC campus. Design included a new approximately 280 space multi-use parking structure with two levels to be constructed with consideration for future vertical expansion up to seven levels total. Design included elevators, stairwells, lighting, structural and site stormwater drainage, fire alarm systems, fire pumps and standpipes, emergency call systems, CCTV, and site landscaping. Suicide prevention was designed to allow natural lighting into the structure. As a sub to Apogee, WGI provided a traffic flow study to determine the impact on surrounding surface streets.
Because the areas adjacent to the project are in continuously occupied and operated by the VA, the design team developed phasing into the design to ensure that the construction of the project will not impede the VA’s mission to care for Veterans.
Apogee provided planning, architecture, MEP engineering, fire protection engineering, cost estimating, and RCDD. Subconsultants provided civil, structural, geotechnical, landscape architecture, and physical security.
Our dedicated project manager implemented a schedule to manage both in-house and subconsultant disciplines. Held regular internal status meetings, established early internal deadlines to ensure adequate time to perform QA/QC, and kept a issues log to track and review comments.
