Normandale Community College Parking Structure

The Normandale Community College Campus parking structure is centrally located with four levels and 725 total stalls. The following elements are incorporated into the finished product: the parking structure footprint is 56,000 sf with a total parking structure area (all levels) of 218,000 sf. The parking structure is cast-in-place post-tension concrete with a thin brick veneer precast on the exterior. Between the precast veneers is a metal screening to give the ramp an enclosed building look. Total volume of concrete utilized was approximately 8,000. The two stair towers are constructed with self-consolidating cast-in-place colored concrete utilizing a Thermomass insulation system. Thermomass is an insulated concrete sandwich; much like one would see in a typical insulated precast situation in this case, the sandwich was cast-in-place. The stair towers include structurally large sloping windows, making the concrete forming and placement unique.
