3000 C Street Parking Garage Office Bldg

This fast track design/build project met the Owner’s goal of creating efficient Class A office space and parking while maximizing the site utilization of this desirable mid-town Anchorage location with a vision for future development. The project includes a 4-story, 80,000 square feet Office Building, and a 425 car, 3 1/2 level Parking Garage. The design concept for both structures was developed in April 2001. Construction began in May, with design development and phased permitting staying just ahead of progress on site. With the new structures being built adjacent to an existing high-tech office operating 24/7; safety, temporary parking, and noise/vibration reduction received special attention. The garage was completed in 5 1/2 months and the office in 8 months. The Parking Garage is a 3 1/2 level post-tensioned concrete structure with elevator access to each level. RHC formed, placed, and finished the concrete, installed all reinforcing steel, post-tensioned cables, metal railings, and screens. The Office Building is 4-story structural steel and composite deck structure with architectural insulated metal panel and glass exterior walls. The air-conditioned building is heated with a hydronic baseboard and cooled by 2 rooftop package A/C units. The floors are accessed by two roped hydraulic elevators.
