Montclair State University Parking Garage
Montclair, NJ United States | 2010
Hot-dip galvanized steel was used in this parking garage for its aesthetic appeal and also to protect the automobiles from UV rays and other elements in Arizona.
The project contains many different HDG pieces including the parking canopy, columns and beams for the skin structure, crash barrier, and guard rails totaling 300,000 pounds of steel. The project designer spent time with the galvanizer to learn more about the process in order to create details that worked well with the HDG process, such as the steel framing from which to hang the stainless steel skin. The skin is used to help provide shade and protection from the elements for the parked vehicles. Using galvanized steel allowed the contractors to complete the project on time and under budget. In fact, the project was such a success that an expansion of the facility using galvanized steel is planned.
