University of the Incarnate Word Parking Garage

Higher Ed | San Antonio

  • Project Scope 300,000 SF Parking Garage
  • Completion Date October 2008
  • Owner University of the Incarnate Word
  • Architect McChesney Bianco

During the construction of a nearby fast-track, five-story, dormitory for the owner, our team was approached with another challenge: building a nine-story parking garage in nine months. This nine story, structural steel, 300,000 square feet, 800-car parking garage broke ground on January 3, 2008. Over one half the garage was opened by the end of August to allow for partial use. The additional levels and an additive alternate for a fiberglass exterior skin were completed by the end of October.
