DUBUQUE INTERMODAL FACILITY
Located within the historic Millwork District, this facility includes a 292-stall parking facility that is connected to the 8,700 sf terminal building by an elevated pedestrian bridge. The transit hub will connect commuters to local and long distance bus service. The design and scale of the project is respectful to the surrounding historic context and will enhance the vitality of the historic district site.
IOWA RIVER LANDING WEST PARKING FACILITY
The structure dually serves the IRL retail district and the UIHC medical office building. Dedicated retail parking is provided on the lower level, while the upper levels serve the clinic to the south. The structure is built into the site’s slope site, minimizing the building mass. Materials used include brick veneered precast concrete, perforated metal, and trellis panel.
AMES INTERMODAL FACILITY
Located on the west border of Campustown, the project provides both parking and transit services. The facility is built into the site’s natural slope to minimize the height of the 385-stall structure. Pedestrian visibility and safety is increased by cantilevered walkways and glass stair towers. The parking structure is designed to expand both vertically and horizontally. The project has achieved LEED Silver Certification.
