Presbyterian Hospital Parking Structure – Albuquerque, NM

Project Overview

This project overview outlines the design, construction, and implementation of a 1200-car precast concrete parking structure for the Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque, NM. The three-story structure is 274′ x 497′ in size and provides 376,350sf of parking space. The exterior of the structure is composed of architectural spandrels and walls with integrated color and light sandblast finish. This choice of material ensures a virtually maintenance free project.

The entire structure is constructed with precast concrete, requiring 250,900sf of double tees, 874 components in all, including beams, shear and light walls, stairs, spandrels, and columns. Ultimately, this construction method ensures a durable, secure, and cost-efficient structure.

The design and construction of the structure includes an additional feature to account for the sloping site of the project. Precast retaining walls are necessary to retain the 23 feet of earth along the south portion of the structure. Ultimately, this ensures a safe and reliable parking area for medical staff and visitors to the Presbyterian Hospital.

Project Attributes:
This project involves the construction of a 1200-car total precast concrete parking structure to support the Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque, NM. The structure has a 274′ x 497′ footprint, providing 376,350sf of total parking area and is composed of architectural spandrels and walls with integrated color and a light sandblast finish. A total of 250,900sf of double tees including beams, shear and light walls, stairs, spandrels, and columns are used to construct the structure, which is made cost-efficient, durable, and secure. Precast retaining walls also retain 23 feet of earth along the south portion of the structure to ensure safe and reliable parking for hospital staff and visitors.

Precast Benefits

The use of precast concrete for this project provides a variety of benefits for the Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque, NM. The exterior of the structure is composed of architectural spandrels and walls with integrated color and a light sandblast finish which requires virtually no maintenance. This ensures that the structure will last for years with minimal upkeep. Additionally, the use of precast concrete ensures the structure’s durability, cost-efficiency, and security which will prove beneficial for the hospital over time. When building on sloping sites, precast retaining walls can also be used to retain earth, thereby making the structure suitable for installation.

The use of precast concrete components also reduces construction time since the components are produced offsite. As a result, there are fewer potential safety hazards due to the elimination of site-casting. Ultimately, this project can be completed quickly and efficiently while remaining cost-effective and reliable.
