Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH) is a nationally ranked pediatric acute care teaching hospital. The Livingston Ambulatory Center is a six-story building accommodating outpatient services for children in eight ambulatory departments. NCH engaged Walker to provide the prime design of an 881-space, 9-level cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete parking structure to support the Center’s patients and staff. Walker’s services included Prime Design, Functional Design and Structural Engineer of Record.
The garage design includes: above grade parking on seven levels with two levels below grade; segregated parking for staff and visitors; a service dock area adjacent to the garage; multiple pedestrian connections to the building, including tunnel connections at each end of the garage.
