The Atlanta VAMC Design/Build Parking Deck project was constructed at the Atlanta VA Medical Center for the Department of Veterans Affairs for $8.2 million in 2012. This project included the design and construction of two three-story parking decks on the campus of the Atlanta VA Medical Center. Work included design, demolition of the site including roadways and parking, site utilities, storm drainage (including temporary routing of stormwater), deep/auger cast foundations, pile caps/CIP concrete, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, elevators, precast deck, topping slabs, waterproofing, structural steel, miscellaneous metals, storefront, doors, landscaping, roadways, paving and finishes.
The project was constructed at an active medical center in phases in which automobile and pedestrian traffic was maintained and temporarily routed (during the different phases). Ambulance access and Public Transportation access were maintained throughout the project. Temporary traffic control plans and installed / maintained traffic control measures during the different phases. The site conditions were very “tight” which required careful planning and scheduling at one of the nation’s busiest VA.
