UCSD selects Bomel Construction for design-build parking structure

October, 2009

Design-build team selected for major parking structure at UC San Diego; 323,000-square-foot garage includes a soccer field, will be completed in 2011

LA JOLLA, Calif., October 31––––A major addition to a campus hospital will create a need for more parking at one of America’s leading research universities.

To that end, UC San Diego has selected the team that will be responsible for designing and building a 323,000-square-foot parking structure on its East Campus.

The cast-in-place concrete garage will provide more than 1,000 stalls for people working or visiting the Thornton Hospital Cardiovascular Center, which is undergoing a four-story, 128,000-square-foot expansion. The parking structure and hospital addition will be finished in the spring of 2011.

The design-build team responsible for the five-level parking structure, which will include a 62,000-square-foot soccer field, includes Bomel Construction Co., general contractor; International Parking Design, architect of record; Wolf Architecture, design architect and Hope Engineering, structural engineer.

“Excavating near a protected natural habitat and incorporating the soccer field will be among the most challenging aspects of construction,” said Mike Lucio, district manager for Bomel Construction.

This is the second UC San Diego project for Bomel Construction, one of the largest concrete contractors in the United States. In 2006, Bomel completed structural concrete and formwork for the Hopkins Parking Structure, a seven-level, 1,419-stall facility.
