The West End Garage is a five-level, 830-stall facility next to TQL Stadium. THP was the parking consultant, and structural engineer for the garage, which was designed to complement the aesthetic of the adjacent stadium. The garage is a long-span, post-tensioned, cast-in-place concrete frame structure on auger cast pile foundations.
Vehicular and pedestrian capacity and flow were a priority during design; a dual ramp system and dual entry/exit locations provide congestion relief when entering and exiting the garage during stadium events. Pedestrian and bicycle pathways are separated from vehicular entry/exit locations to enhance safety. Further promoting safety and a clean tailgating environment, post-tensioned barrier cables, glass stair enclosures, and sloped beams and rails were implemented.
THP led the design team through a significant planning exercise to determine the garage footprint, location, and geometrics. Numerous site layouts and garage geometries were studied to establish an efficient parking layout while working with the surrounding stakeholders.
