University of Houston parking garage connects commuters to campus
Designed by WHR Architects, the University of Houston’s new 2,300-car, 735,821-gsf, four-level parking facility provides multiple uses for students, staff, and visitors, with stores, restaurants, and UH Parking offices at street level. Adjacent to Cougar Walk, the pedestrian walkway that connects UH’s Robertson Stadium to buildings around campus, the garage exterior is adorned with the university’s colors and logo. The Building Team also included Vaughan Construction (contractor), Walker Parking Consultants (structural/functional engineering), Shah Smith & Associates (MEP), Clark Condon (landscape architect), Walter P Moore (CE), and 4b Technology (IT/data/security).
