UC Davis Health Parking Structure IV

Sacramento, CA

The continued growth of UC Davis Health Center combined with plans for future development meant that additional structured parking was needed to alleviate the shortage of on-site staff parking. An underutilized site on the northeast corner of the campus was selected. As the site is bounded by a residential area on the north side, one of the challenges to the design-build team was to design a structure that would minimize noise, light spillage, and overall massing of the structure.

To minimize site impacts, to an already busy campus our prefabricated parking solution was chosen to achieve the design intent and utilize the structure sooner than with traditional construction.

Nearly all structural components are fabricated off-site in their entirety and then brought to the job site to be erected. Nearly 90% of fabrication was complete when the project gained approvals and permit to construct. By utilizing precast elements, the project will be completed in just over 11 months. Additionally, transportation of prefabricated pieces was completed during off-hours ultimately limiting the overall amount of construction traffic on campus created by the project.

The structure is pursuing Parksmart Silver and was recently awarded Platinum status by the United States Resiliency Council.
