Parking Structures
Villanova University - Saint Augustine Center Garage Expansion

In an effort to enhance the campus environment, maximize parking and enable other projects to ensue, Villanova constructed a two-story overbuild addition to the existing Saint Augustine Center garage for a total of 170,019 SF. Creating an additional 223 parking spaces, the expansion nearly doubled the amount of parking currently available. Renovations to the existing parking structure were also completed.

The facility was constructed of precast concrete with stone cladding to blend with the structures throughout the campus. Additional foundation work occurred below the existing structure and included shearwalls and additional support for added levels to meet structural requirements.

Features of the garage expansion included:

  • Pedestrian walkway
  • Bent aluminum railings
  • Precast addition & stone cladding
  • Prefabricated shelters
  • 4-stop elevator
  • Improved lighting
The scope of the renovations included:
  • Re-striping
  • Lighting
  • Storm drainage system

Located in the heart of Villanova University's active, urban campus, and adjacent to active SEPTA rail lines, careful coordination and close communication with the entire project team to ensure the safety of students, visitors, construction workers and staff was essential.
