The 580-space parking garage project supports the accessibility of the University of Central Florida (UCF) Downtown campus. The four-story garage includes license plate recognition technology, security cameras, real-time space counts by floor and electric charging stations. The ground floor includes approximately 25,000 square feet of space for University-operated retail, campus services and storage space for campus supplies.
While building the UCF Downtown Garage, the contract documents called for 25-foot-tall light poles with LED lights to be installed on the garage’s top deck, in conflict with the university’s building codes, which designate hinged light poles with halogen bulbs. The team supported the client by encouraging the approval of the less expensive, lower-maintenance aluminum light poles with energy-efficient LED lights.
