Proj Overview


Health One Swedish Medical Center and its campus has been part of the community for 100 years and serves a steady and growing base of more than 200,000 patients annually. The organization needed a new parking structure to accommodate patients, visitors, and hundreds of employees, and they needed it quickly. Precast concrete not only met but exceeded the owner’s expectations for the 825-car structure, which was completed nearly two weeks ahead of schedule.

Having the new structure blend in with the existing structures was a key goal for the owner, along with minimal disruption to existing facilities. Compared to other construction methods, precast concrete met those goals handily and shortened the duration of on-site construction work.

Key Project Attributes

  • The total duration of the project was 14 weeks, two weeks less than the 16 budgeted by the owner.
  • One of the more unique items for the garage was the use of cast-in thin brick and CMU.
  • Precast concrete beams, columns, and flat slabs created a light, open design for the elevator vestibule. The main vestibules were beams and columns with glazing, so they were higher end and more open than typical garage vestibules.

Project/Precast Scope

  • The 825-space precast concrete parking structure project comprises 813 pieces.
  • Gray acid-etch spandrels, combined with cast-in CMU and thin brick, provide a pleasing aesthetic that complements the traditional aesthetic of the medical campus.
  • Precast concrete components fabricated in vertical dimensions and spans helped address a grade change.
