Snow Kreilich Architects teamed to provide the architectural design, documentation, specifications and construction management for this new 460-stall elevated Park and Ride facility. This project was delivered in tandem with the park and ride at Kenrick Avenue, in 4.5 months to meet the demands of the Federal Urban Partnership Agreement (UPA) funds.
To address Metro Transit’s safety, sustainable and aesthetic concerns, we utilized a perforated, recycled aluminum cladding panel that could perform a dual role of screening the concrete structure and allowing for transparency and views both into and out of the ramp. The perforated aluminum skin also provides a dynamic, changing façade through the play of light and shadow across its surface.
The project met the B3 standards through innovative use of recycled aluminum siding, native landscape plantings, recycled mulch, LED lighting throughout the facility, and recycled and low VOC materials. A robust security system was designed to allow Metro Transit to capture activity throughout the building.
