WALKER provided landside planning, financial analysis, functional design, and structural/mechanical/electrical/plumbing engineering for this 1,305 space, 5-level precast pre-stressed concrete structure for pubic parking and rental car storage. The ground floor contains 230 spaces for rental car ready/return with a separate access ramp. The upper four levels are for public parking and a steel-framed canopy provides covered pedestrian access to the terminal. The facade features a custom-perforated metal-screen wall designed to mimic the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains.
“Walker Consultants has been a key member of the consulting team that created the design for the Asheville Regional Airport’s new parking structure … it was extremely important that the design team produce a building that would have significant architectural appeal to the community. The work performed on this project by Walker Consultants has already resulted in overwhelmingly positive acceptance of this project by the airport and the community, even prior to its completion.”
