The Children’s Hospital in Plano needed to expand their parking garage to accommodate their future growth, and Coreslab Structures was the perfect team for the job. Utilizing precast concrete, the project team was able to meet the unique design constraints of the curved site layout, creating a durable and aesthetically pleasing end product. The team began the Design Assist process in June 2021, followed by Drafting & Engineering in October 2021, Production in January 2022, and the installation of all 722 precast components was completed in March-May 2022.
In total, the project included 175,000 square feet of elevated deck area, along with Double Tees, Beams, Columns, Spandrels, Wall Panels, and Stair Risers. The end result was a safe and spacious 640-space parking garage, which could easily accommodate the hospital’s future growth. Using precast concrete enabled the project team to meet the unique design constraints of the curved site layout, while creating a product that was both durable and aesthetically pleasing.
Coreslab Structures was able to complete the project in a timely manner, from Design Assist in June 2021, through Drafting & Engineering in October 2021, Production in January 2022, and Installed in March-May 2022. The Children’s Hospital in Plano now has a parking garage that not only looks great, but is also safe and able to handle the facility’s future growth.
Children’s Hospital in Plano is committed to providing the best possible care to their patients and families. In order to better serve their community, the hospital is expanding their facilities with the construction of a 640-space parking garage. The design of the garage was carefully planned to fit in with the existing architecture and service roads to create a seamless look.
The project began with a design assist phase in June 2021 to ensure that the garage blended in with the existing architecture. The design team knew that precast would be the most effective material for the unique curved layout of the site. Drafting and engineering began in October 2021, followed by production in January 2022. The installation of the garage is scheduled to be completed between March and May 2022.
The hospital’s expansion through the construction of the parking garage will provide improved service to their patients and families. The precast material used to build the garage was carefully selected to ensure the design fit in with the existing geometry of the campus. The project is on schedule, and the installation of the garage is expected to be completed between March and May 2022.
