Elliot at River’s Edge
- Location:Manchester, New Hampshire
Working with CUBE3 Studio, Veitas and Veitas was tasked with designing a parking garage to service a new medical campus, consisting of an ambulatory health care center, medical office building and functionality for urgent care, diagnostic imaging, cardiac rehabilitation and other specialized medical services. Not only did the garage need to integrate into the large, complex health care facility, it needed to fit into a steeply sloping remediated brownfield site.
The Elliott health care campus, which was completed on schedule and on budget, was one of the first facilities in the country to register for LEED for Health Care status. Its precast concrete parking garage was constructed to accommodate nearly 1,000 cars, making it the largest private garage in the state. Accommodating the sloping site meant designing a series of stepped foundation walls that would allow the structure to step down into the site and lean against the garage-facing basement walls.
