Morgan Hill Parking Structure
F&H Construction recently completed the Morgan Hill Parking Structure. Through a Design/Build qualification process, The City of Morgan Hill selected F&H and its team members to design and build the Downtown Morgan Hill Parking Structure.
Our Design Team consisted of:
- F&H Construction – General Contractor
- Architect of Record – HNA/Pacific
- Exterior Architect – WMB Architects
- Civil Engineer – BKF Engineers
- Structural Engineer – Jessen-Wright Structural Engineers
- Mechanical Engineer – Glumac
- Electrical Engineer – Glumac
- Landscape Architect – Smith+Smith
- Artist – Gordon Heuther+Partners, Inc.
The parking structure is a composite building which converged precast structural concrete and cast-in-place slabs. The project includes a 4,300 square foot retail space with capacity to allow up to 3 commercial tenants. The façade is comprised of over 120 precast concrete panels that were casted either on site or at F&H’s yard in Lodi. Once the panels were erected, large decorative steel tube frames with perforated metal panel inlays were set in the façade openings. The openings at the corners are in filled with cast-in-place concrete that was imprinted with a Fractured Concrete Form liner. This parking structure is beautifully enhanced by two art pieces designed and fabricated by Gordon Huether Studios. At the pedestrian entrance, a Poppy Jaspers inspired glass panel system wraps one corner of the building and at the vehicle entrance, a large tarantula cloaked with motorcycle headlamps scales up the 40’ shear wall.
The task, which began as a Design/Build parking structure expanded to include two adjacent street improvement projects. From the design phase to the completion of the parking structure itself it took about 16 months.
Daniel Hoff, who was the lead Project Engineer, expresses his favorite aspects of the project. “The City of Morgan Hill was passionate about building a structure which took elements of the unique local environment and incorporated them into the design and art pieces of the structure. It was not just a run of the mill structure. The end result of everyone’s dedication was a beautiful piece of architecture that’s useful to the community.”
F&H, also teamed up with a group of excellent subcontractors; Con-Fab California Corporation, Pacific Metro Electric, Inc., Comfort Air Inc., Drier Fire Protection, Inc., CMC Rebar, and many more, who have an extensive and respectable relationship with our company. Each one of these subcontractors demonstrated their abilities to perform and provide a quality product to the City of Morgan Hill. These subcontractors also share F&H’s critical success factors, such as experience, efficiency, safety and reputation.
