Naval Station Great Lakes Parking Garage
North Chicago, Illinois
Naval Station Great Lakes was experiencing growth and needed updates to its aging facilities. The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense conducted a joint venture design-build competition to find a firm that could design a new parking garage to serve staff and visitors at the newly expanded VA hospital on the base.
Kluber Architects + Engineers partnered with design-build contractor JJ Henderson, Gewalt Hamilton, and Spancrete to complete the winning four-level structure. The structure was designed with a precast system that not only saved the owner time and money, but also allowed for future additions. The parking garage has a capacity of 560 cars and is 55,000-square-feet per level.
