1000 Parking Stalls
Rochester parking demand exceeded capacity in a growing, developing, and expanding downtown center. The project includes constructing a new parking ramp for Mayo Clinic employees and contracted use.
The Block 6 site is well-positioned to provide proximal transportation services to Mayo Clinic and downtown Rochester, including future subway connections. The new post-tensioned 10-story parking ramp has 1000 parking stalls. MCE provided MEP engineering services for this project.
Energy-efficient design features include an air-cooled VRF system for space conditioning in the elevator lobbies and back-of-house spaces. In addition, LED lighting achieves a high degree of illumination with optimum light distribution and low energy use.
The parking facility is protected with an interconnected dry standpipe system and a wet-type automatic sprinkler system for fire protection in occupied areas. All fire protection piping consists of galvanized piping for enhanced durability. The fire alarm system provides smoke detection in the elevator lobbies and monitors the sprinkler system flow and tamper switches.
With excellent illumination and efficient MEP systems, this ramp creates a safe, walkable, active environment within, adjacent to, and around the ramp.
