CSU Sacramento, Parking Structure 5

Northern California

Located by the main entrance to the Sacramento State campus, Parking Structure 5 is designed to blend and complement the dense trees of the nearby arboretum. Replacing an existing surface lot, the 1,750 stall, six-level parking structure serves a campus in dire need of parking and provides a structure exceeding the quality and efficiency of any of the previous parking facilities.

Serving a sizable percentage of the campus’ parking need, automobile circulation is designed to move traffic into the structure as efficiently as possible with queuing space off-street to handle periods of high volume. Taking advantage of Clark Pacific’s Total Precast architectural concrete system, the design quality and level of material finish are second to none. Because of the increased erection speed possible with the precast solution, the overall project schedule was more aggressive and intended to be completed over a single school semester.

The technology, design, innovations, placemaking and conservation programs implemented at Parking Structure 5 allow it to achieve a Parksmart Gold certification by the Green Building Certification Institute for the U.S. Green Building Council, making it the highest-performing, most-sustainable parking structure on campus.

“The team successfully and safely delivered this project in alignment with the University’s program, within budget and, utilizing the team’s prefabricated systems approach, significantly faster and with significantly less campus impact than competing conventional systems.”

CSUS Senior Director,
