The Guangzhou Arena Garage Guangzhou, China

The Guangzhou Arena and Parking Garage have provided this Chinese port city with a world-class NBA arena and event garage. The 42,000 sq. meter (450,000 sq. ft.) garage provides a secure parking area with a direct connection to the arena’s private VIP Level. The arena and the garage’s design accommodate the rigorous standards of the NBA, a feature that will allow it to be home to the league’s expansion throughout Asia.

The garage is specifically designed for events, and its 15,000 patrons will exit in less than 15 minutes at the conclusion of the show/game. WALTER P MOORE provided parking consulting services for this facility and, in addition, set the design criteria for future NBA/event parking facilities in China.

Diagnosing concrete problems through petrographic analysis

Walker Parking Consultants

Duke University Parking Garage IX, Durham, North Carolina

Several new projects in the research zone eliminated surface parking and this necessitated a new facility that will provide parking to students, faculty, visitors, and patients. The architectural context of this garage blends well with the surrounding buildings but also provides for a sustainable green design with the green walls and roof canopies. The mixture of precast spandrel panels at the upper levels and the terra cotta material at the lower levels provides a unique design solution. The garage contains flat floors with an express ramp on the north side, allowing for better visibility and passive security to the patrons. A high level of service lighting design, along with painting of the undersides of the concrete structure, provides a high level of visibility. The cast-in- place post-tensioned structure chosen should provide a long service life and contributes to the “open” feeling of the garage.
