Demand for parking at the University of California Davis (UC Davis) Health Campus exceeded capacity on the Sacramento property. Additional development would further reduce available parking, so it was critical to design and construct a parking structure to meet the future needs of the campus. The solution was Parking Structure 4, a new five-level, employee permit parking facility.

Parking Structure 4 is adjacent to a residential neighborhood, which influenced many aspects of the design, says Ginger Thompson, project designer with Dreyfuss + Blackford Architecture. The design-build team was challenged with creating a structure that would minimize noise and light spillage and meet the design aesthetic. It was important to take advantage of the limited noise a precast concrete project generates.
