Name: Lone Star College Parking Garage at Fairbanks Center
Location: Houston, TX
Completion: August 2014
Value: $3 million
Owner: Lone Star College System
Architect: Kirksey Architecture
The three-level precast parking structure adds more than 300 spaces to alleviate parking challenges at the Lone Star College- CyFair Fairbanks Center. The project faced multiple challenges from the start: limited funds, a tight schedule with significant long lead time for precast and accessibility of the center to students and the public. The garage was completed within 21 weeks, which was earlier than the original schedule and included all site work, utilities, foundations and elevator installation.
Part of Webber’s strategy was to save money on re-paving by preventing damage to the existing surface lot. Our team prepared a detailed plan to control the flow of construction traffic and designated certain areas for high protection. The plan also included isolating construction activities from the school’s activities to protect the students and public. Through careful coordination of a detailed plan, additional savings were returned to the college at the end of the project.
