UT East Campus Parking Garage
UT Austin needed a 2,000-car garage to provide much-needed parking for the campus and future graduate student housing. Datum worked as part of a design-build team which delivered the first 1,200 spaces in less than 24 months, with an additional 800 spaces just 4 months later. We worked closely with the construction team to design around existing conditions (such as the adjacent to Disch-Falk baseball field), site construction constraints on an active campus, and long-lead items. The design of the post-tensioned elements was coordinated with the pour sequences and tendon pulls to speed construction while providing a very low maintenance structural solution.
