Owner: Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital
Location: Windsor, Ontario
Size: 175,000 sf
The construction of a 537 car parking structure formed part of this larger development plan. The primary challenge of this project was to manipulate the design into the compact site and to ultimately integrate the deck with the existing hospital.
The parking deck layout and access/egress plan utilized existing road systems in order to maximize the garage footprint. The garage, situated in the downtown core, provided a significant parking solution to relieve patient and visitor accessibility needs. The deck was physically joined to the hospital by a connecting bridge that spanned ground level service routes. This bridge strategically linked the garage circulation shaft, comprised of two elevators and stair systems, with the hospital’s main lobby and admitting centre.
