UC Residence Hall Parking Garage

Charleston, SC

The University of Charleston needed additional student housing and parking. The solution was a 530-space parking structure which is wrapped on three sides with a 250-bedroom dormitory.

One of the main concerns of the university was matching the exterior façade to all the other buildings on campus. The architectural precast producer, Gate Precast, worked with the architect and brick producer to ensure the exterior panels matched seamlessly with the brick on the dormitory and existing campus buildings. Precast stairs and landings were supplied in the two stair towers to give immediate and safe vertical access to all levels of the parking structure.
The precast parking structure met all the aesthetic, scheduling, financial, and durability needs of the university and the design team.

From the Architect:

“Precast was chosen for this project for its speed of construction, long uninterrupted spans and its ability to blend into the campus at an affordable cost.”
