Michigan Concrete Association Parking Structure Award of Excellence
WGI served as the prime consultant, parking functional designer, and structural engineer for the Studio Park Parking Structure project in Grand Rapids, MI, which was selected for the Parking Structure Award of Excellence by the 2021 Michigan Concrete Association.
The Studio Park parking structure provides parking for the apartments, condos, offices, and movie theatre within the Studio Park development.
The building design consists of three major phases: the north flat plate, the south garage beam, and the east connector building.
The Kent Companies team spent over 6 months pre-planning this very logistically challenging project and performed real-time value engineering as the plans were developed.
The dual cast-in-place structural system provides engineered capability to expand the building up to 16 more stories above the current top floor of the parking structure.
The size and accessibility of the Studio Park Ramp are a tremendous benefit to the Studio Park development and the downtown arena area.
The parking structure accommodates more vehicles than the former surface lot, and the engineered capability within the hybrid flat plate and post-tension beam system will enable this development to continue to grow as a mixed-use property.
