Shands Healthcare Mixed-Use Retail and Parking

Gainesville, Florida

Sharing a construction site with FINFROCK is never a problem. They do whatever is necessary to accomplish their own contractual, schedule and safety obligations as well as helping us accomplish ours.

Capacity:556 stalls in 7 elevated levels, including 13,650 SF of retail space
Location:Gainesville, Florida
Owner:Shands Healthcare
Status:Completion Date: 2009

After winning the contract for the new 500,000 square-foot Shands Cancer Hospital at the University of Florida, the contractor approached FINFROCK to assume responsibility for the design and construction for the 556-stall, seven elevated level mixed-use parking garage portion of the project.

FINFROCK served as architect of record, structural engineer, design-build contractor, and parking consultant for the project. FINFROCK worked with the design architect to revise the garage design including innovative ideas for framing and the use of colored concrete with a brick inlay in the structural panels rather than architectural precast cladding. Both modifications saved the project significant time and money. FINFROCK worked on an extremely tight site without disruption to construction activities for the hospital building. The project was delivered on time and without change orders.

The mixed-use parking garage contributed to the LEED Gold Certification that Shands received for the total project.
