TYLin provided structural design services for a new parking garage as part of mixed-use development project.
This project for the City of Ithaca, New York, was progressed using the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) delivery system.
TYLin’s responsibilities included the structural design of a 1,400-space, cast-in-place, post-tensioned parking structure. A complete seismic analysis was incorporated in the lateral force restraint system design.
- TYLin provided conceptual and final site design for the development.
- The project included relocation of the regional transit facility to the ground level of the new garage.
- TYLin used a 3D Structural Analysis and Design Software (STAAD) model to identify the structure's response to a seismic event and determine loadings generated by an earthquake.
