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; separate parking for staff and visitors; a service dock area adjacent to the garage; and multiple pedestrian connections to the building, including tunnel connections at each end of the garage.
