Donley’s is serving as construction manager at risk for the 1,083-car structure located at the pharmaceutical company’s corporate research center in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Construction began in the summer of 2016 and was completed in August of 2017.
Serving as Construction Manager, Donley’s LLC expanded the Howard Community College’s East parking deck. The 260,000 sq. ft. expansion provides additional, and much needed, parking for 750 vehicles. This project was completed January of 2017.
DESMAN Associates was the designer for this project; a frequent collaborator of Donley’s.
Located on University Hospital’s Case Medical Center campus in Cleveland’s busy University Circle, initial work on this project required the demolition of the existing 32-year-old, 950-space parking deck and pedestrian bridge on the site (which Donley’s had constructed as the general contractor). Donley’s self performed the work for the deck, with 8 levels and 1,214 parking spaces.
This is the seventh parking deck Donley’s has constructed for University Hospitals.
This structure marks Donleys second Design/Build garage project for the City of Akron. The 900-car, 313,936 sq. ft. parking facility is constructed of post-tensioned, cast-in-place concrete. Donleys work consisted of demolition of the existing North garage and ramp, and the design and construction of the new layout on the existing foundation. The five-level facility features a glass-enclosed stair tower, two elevators and a skywalk/tunnel to nearby GoJo Industries. The skywalk was completed in an impressive four weeks.
Donley’s was the Design/Builder for this 475-car parking deck to accompany Bridgestone’s new Technical Center in Akron. The four-level structure is constructed of cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete and features LED fixtures.
The Donley team’s design complements the new Technical Center through the use of similar materials, such as Swisspearl Fiber Cement Panels and Stainless Steel Flatlock Panels (a Bridgestone/Firestone product). In addition, the use of yellow brick ties the parking deck to the historic ballpark that is adjacent to the project site.
A pedestrian bridge connects the approximately 165,000-square-foot parking deck to the Technical Center, providing convenient access for employees and visitors alike.
This new parking deck serves ODU’s University Village, a mixed-use development that includes student housing, retail, and office space. The main entrance and stair tower face the Convocation Center, and allow easy pedestrian access to the facility.
The structure includes light beige exposed-aggregate spandrel panels that alternate with brick-clad precast panels which tie it in with the surrounding campus architecture. The facility also includes approximately 8,000 sq. ft. of retail space on the first floor along Monarch Way.
This new facility is used for the daily parking of campus faculty, staff, and students, as well as patrons of the nearby Ernst Community Cultural Center. The structure was partially constructed into a hillside, eliminating the long uphill walk from the surface parking lot that the parking deck replaced. In addition, the new building’s façade blends with the surrounding stone and precast campus buildings.
Germanna Community College’s new parking deck is situated in a hillside adjacent to the Science & Engineering Building/Information Commons that Donley’s completed as Construction Manager. The tight construction site required a permanent shoring wall to separate the two structures.
The façade of the two-bay structure features thin-set brick and architecturally elaborate stair/elevator towers. A connector canopy to the Science & Engineering Building/Information Commons was also included in the project.
