The expansion brings the facility capacity to over 600 cars and corrects numerous deficiencies including poor vehicle circulation, wayfinding/signage, and pedestrian safety concerns.
The new design considered and matched existing characteristics to ensure aesthetics and function with electronic signage incorporated on the exterior to facilitate wayfinding. The top-level is fully enclosed and supports roof-mounted photovoltaic arrays to make the remodeled space energy-efficient.
The design also completes a tie-in site utility system loops, and security standards accommodate staff and patient flow between project areas and the hospital.
The project is a post-tensioned concrete structure with a custom fabricated Cor-Ten steel skin. Considerations further include connection to a planned mental health facility, coordination for future valet parking, and overall improvements to the hospital campus circulation.
