HDR-Designed UNO Parking Structure Earns Accolades From ACI Nebraska
UNO’s Pacific Campus Parking Structure was recognized with the ACI (American Concrete Institute) Outstanding Achievement Award, Nebraska Chapter, at the Awards Ceremony held on Feb 2, 2018 in Omaha, Nebraska. The ACI Competition recognizes outstanding work in concrete construction and practices in Nebraska. The 2017 competition awarded projects completed during 2016 and 2017.
HDR's design of the parking structure is based on nature with a façade that uses a series of vertical precast concrete “reeds” to wrap the functional box of the garage. Rotating several of the tapered reeds creates a natural pattern that softens the façade and allows in maximum sunlight and views, as well as views in at night, providing an open, airy, and safe environment.
