College Campus Garage
This five-level, 412,796 sf garage for Villanova University is an open, long-span, precast structure consisting of architectural wall panels, columns, double tees, light walls, flat slabs and inverted tee girders. The perimeter wall panels are a colored and sandblasted architectural precast with a field installed stone veneer. The garage foundation system is comprised of 40-foot-deep caissons and grade beams. The ground floor of the garage is recessed into the sloping site to minimize the perceived mass of the garage as well as to comply with local zoning height restrictions. This partial below-grade level required a retaining wall around a substantial portion of the garage perimeter.
