This 4 level parking facility was designed to relieve vehicle congestion on-site and within the surrounding neighbourhood, as well as free up critical site area to accommodate future expansion. The building was also designed to support the hospital's helipad which meant that the entire structure had to comply with post-disaster ocupancy requirements. Much higher snow, wind, and seismic loads had to be accomodated compared to typical parking structures. A large heated deck was also provided to ensure year round Helipad access. A parking structure for cars and helicopters!
