Aurora University Parking Garage
Located within the Aurora University campus in Aurora, Illinois, this new parking garage is open as of January 2020. Located within 6 blocks of the ATMI Precast plant, we were excited for this opportunity to showcase a parking garage directly adjacent to our plant. The increased enrollment of Aurora University (AU) has challenged the local community with regard to parking spaces and this new garage is a very welcome addition to the campus.
The precast concrete parking garage was designed to fit in with the AU architectural scheme of mostly brick buildings. Large expanses of the AU blue color were added in addition to utilizing cast in thin brick to match the campus. The parking garage consists of four elevated levels with a top level crossover ramp to facilitate return traffic flow. The exterior architectural panels consist of white cement, acid etch, and thin brick. Sloping spandrels with thin brick were encased in a picture framed spandrel. This project also includes a below grade detention vault within the garage footprint.
