This suburban assisted living facility simply did not have enough parking for the residents, visitors, and workers. The site as a whole was studied to find the most efficient and cost-effective way to provide a minimum of 15 spaces to the already cramped site. Three options were assessed and estimated by cost, and after describing the findings with the client, they chose which option was best to proceed with design. Additional parking spaces were designed to be built over large diameter pipes inside an existing stormwater easement. The pipes would provide the stormwater detention lost from the added parking spaces.
