The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute recognized the Glen Ellyn Parking Ramp with the 2022 PCI Design Award for the Building Award: Best All-Precast Concrete Parking Structure.
The team of Shive-Hattery, Walker Consultants, and Mortenson Construction acting as Design-Build Contractor were tasked with creating a parking solution in an otherwise undevelopable parcel immediately adjacent to the historic Glen Ellyn Civic Center.
Each precast concrete piece was architecturally finished in the plant and then shipped to the construction site in a carefully timed sequence of trucks and cranes that was coordinated around the needs of the village.
The entire precast concrete erection process was completed in just six weeks in the winter of 2020, and the village is thrilled with the result, Vic Ritter says. “It met the budget and schedule and everyone is extremely happy with the result.”
