Manchester Airport Parking Garage
Manchester, NH United States | 1999
The existing parking garage and terminal building on the airport site were largely concrete in appearance. However, the airport recently completed construction on a new terminal canopy with exposed structural steel to mimic the appearance of ships masts in the port city.
The new garage design was tasked to tie all of the existing elements together and provide added visual appeal rather than looking like an eye-sore. The precast concrete and steel parking structure has a large amount of steel visible including columns, beams, canopies, trusses, and rafters. The visible exterior steel in the structure was specified for a duplex system of hot-dip galvanizing with blue or red paint, but the interior steel structure of the garage features exposed galvanizing. By utilizing the combination of exposed galvanized steel, and duplexed steel, the parking garage and rental facility gest the best of both worlds superior corrosion protection in the harsh New England Climate, and a mix of colorful finishes to interest visitors for years to come.
