Parking Structure at UCD Medical Center, Sacramento
Parking Structure at UCD Medical Center, Sacramento

The University of California, Davis Medical Center campus in Sacramento has transformed itself from a sprawling suburban-like campus to a compact and efficient urban medical center. A key support element in that transformation is structured parking. The 7-level Parking Structure III adds 1,200 spaces, the latest in seismic design, advanced parking technology, individual parking stall availability indicators, and a lots of natural light in the interior for safety and security. Suspended over the precast concrete structure, a louvered shade screen veils the building from the street and creates privacy for the adjacent patient rooms. Made of nearly 4,000 extruded aluminum fins, each blade is rotated at a distinct angle designed to reflect light inside the structure.
