LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 19, 2012) - Swinerton Builders in partnership with IDG Parkitects have been selected for award of subcontract as the design-build team for Jet Propulsion Laboratory's West Arroyo Parking Structure in Pasadena, California.
The $17.5 million project consists of a 4.5-story, 1,436-stall, cast-in-place concrete parking structure. It also includes significant ancillary roadway and surrounding hardscape improvements, as well as the demolition of existing buildings and the City of Pasadena-owned East Arroyo Parking Lot. The project also provides the structural capability for a future support grid for photovoltaic panels over the upper parking level.
Swinerton has worked on past projects at NASA sites, including JPL's Flight Project Center and the NASA Ames Research Center's Sustainability Base. Swinerton and JPL have a shared commitment to minimizing impact to the surrounding community, which will be evident through the innovative design of the new parking structure.
Groundbreaking occurred on November 7th, and construction on the parking structure will begin in March 2013; estimated completion is set for March 2014. Additional design-build members include: Structural Engineer Jessen-Wright, Civil Engineer Land Design Consultants, Inc., and Traffic Consultant LSA Associates.
