Member News: TimHaahs Celebrates Opening of Auburn University Parking Facility
TimHaahs recently completed the development of a new 750-space parking facility for Auburn University in Auburn, AL. TimHaahs served as the parking consultant and engineer of record for the garage which will serve the University, as well as the Auburn Hotel and Conference Center. The garage will also support the growing parking needs of special events on campus, especially game days at Jordan-Hare Stadium, home of the Auburn Tigers.
TimHaahs collaborated with Cooper Carry Architects for this project. Cooper Carry won the assignment to design a new building for the Culinary Arts program at Auburn University. The project included an underground parking deck, which proved to be cost prohibitive. As a result, the team conducted master planning services design this new stand-alone garage on College Street.
The parking deck is comprised of precast concrete construction and includes parking technology for accommodating pay-on-foot and pay-by-space, using one’s mobile phone. The three-bay, side by side helix functional design is easy to sue and provides an excellent level of service for hotel patrons, Auburn personnel, visitors and students. The parking deck was delivered using a design-bid-build approach and took less than 12 months to build
