Text size: A A

California State University, Fullerton recently completed a $20-million, 1,500-stall parking garage, the third facility on campus and the second by the design-build general contractor, Bomel Construction Co.

In addition to erecting and assisting project architect International Parking Design with the design of the six-level garage, Anaheim Hills-based Bomel was in charge of re-routing Folino Drive, one of the major streets on campus.

The cast-in-place concrete parking facility also features a parking information center, where patrons can get campus directions and purchase parking passes. The center is near a pedestrian plaza with outdoor seating for students, visitors, staff and faculty.

The design called for a roof-level surface to house photovoltaic panels when the university installs them at a later date.

The 535,000-sq-ft parking structure also features an open-air, six-story concrete spiral staircase.
