Ashburn North Garage

Loudoun County, Virginia
1,530 space, 9-level precast, prestressed concrete parking garage
Functional design, structural and MEP engineering, and PARCS and signage design consulting services.

Ashburn Station is a Washington Metro station in Loudoun County, Virginia, located on the Silver Line at the southwest corner of Metro Center Drive and Gramercy Park Drive. The garage is part of a mixed-use development with 18,000 SF retail space at grade. Walker provided structural engineering and functional design services for the 1,530-space, 9-level precast prestressed concrete parking structure with a loading dock/dumpster area integrated within the ground-tier retail parking area.

Key features include:

  • Integrated retail space at the ground tier with a segregated parking area
    for shoppers
  • Metro parking area controlled by a parking access revenue
    control system
  • A bike room is enclosed with mesh and with electric locks
  • The façade was designed to accommodate the load of a large-scale LED display should the owner want to add an interactive component
    in the future

The project was a collaborative effort for Loudoun County led by the
developer to support a more extensive billion-dollar development for
the new transit corridor. The design met the high expectations to surpass
the aesthetics of a typical garage and a short schedule: twelve months
for the design and sixteen months for construction. The design team’s approach to quality control ensured the team delivered the project on schedule and budget with minimal change orders.
