Maury Regional Medical Center Parking Garage
Scope: New Facility
Location: Columbia, TN
Services: Engineering and Architecture
The parking structure at Maury Regional Medical Center was designed with a dual purpose. It was to provide the much needed additional parking spaces initially, but also to prepare for a two-level vertical expansion, freeing valuable land for future building.
The 3 level parking garage is situated on a sloping site which allows for independent access to each level. Originally containing 315 parking spaces, the current structure has been expanded horizontally to increase that number by 228 spaces which makes a total of 543 spaces. The structure features pre-cast concrete, spandrel panels, and economical steel restraint cables. A tunnel has been constructed from Level 1 to nearly Outpatient Pavilion to provide protected access. The stairwells are designed with a glass curtainwall system which offers safe, visible access to and from the garage and the ability to grow vertically.
