Parking Garage (Phase 3)
Client: Department of Veterans Affairs
Location: Malcom Randall VA Medical Center, Gainesville, FL
Project to design a multi-story parking structure located at Parking Lot 6 at the Gainesville VAMC. Construction would provide approximately 1,000 parking spaces. The project called for design and construction aspects to match the facility’s existing parking garages. The structure is designed to support future vertical and horizontal expansions, and vertical expansion will comply with Federal Aviation Administration requirements related to a heliport landing approach. Permitting requirements included Florida Department of Transportation permit for adding a new entrance driveway, St. Johns River Water Management District permit for storm water management, and a Gainesville Regional Utilities permit for potable water, fire, and sanitary lines. This was the third of three parking garage design projects completed by the AKEA team for the Gainesville VAMC.
