Parking resources were in high demand as more than 7 million patrons visited this Universal theme park last year. This impressive 1.8 million sf nine-level parking structure utilized more than 67,000 cubic yards of concrete. Connecting to the structure are four vehicular bridges, a cast-in-place helix ramp, a two-way crescent ramp and a pedestrian bridge. Rubber coated steel expansion joints were selected as a solution to dampen the noise of cars traveling throughout the garage that could otherwise be heard in the nearby neighborhood.
Using three-dimensional laser scanning on the pedestrian bridge –which connects all nine levels of parking to a single public pathway into the theme park – ensured ADA compliance and aided in meeting the schedule. Additional scope items included underground utilities, installing an electrical substation and roadway work leading to the parking structure.
