- 35th Anniversary
East Parking Deck and West Parking Deck at VA Ann Arbor Health Care System were constructed in 1996 as part of a major clinical addition and renovation to VA Medical Center in Ann Arbor. The East parking deck had 4 levels approximately 230,000 square foot with 745 parking spaces to provide free parking to all patients. The West parking deck had 5 levels approximately 134,000 square foot with 382 parking spaces. Both parking structures were constructed with precast double tees with cast-in-place concrete topping supported by precast beams on precast concrete columns or load-bearing walls. The lateral load resisting systems consisted of precast shear walls and moment frames. The East parking deck foundations were supported by steel pipe piles filled with concrete. The West parking deck foundation was supported by auger cast piles.
