East Parking Garage Expansion

University of North Texas Health Science Center

Serving as the prime consultant, JQ provided project management and structural engineering services on the vertical addition to the University of North Texas Health Science Center East Parking Garage. Our scope included implementing a well-coordinated design process that involved high levels of collaboration with the UNTHSC staff, as well as the rest of the design and construction team. The existing garage was four levels and the project added an additional 59,700 SF and 205 additional parking spaces. The one-level expansion is composite steel construction with cellular beams, which minimized the load onto the existing foundation. A metal panel fa├žade served to maintain daylight exposure while also blending the addition with the existing garage.
