"The competition consisted of submissions ranging from single-family homes to skyscrapers, and from bridges to stadiums," noted CRSI in a letter to Transportation and Parking Services director Wes Scott in announcing its design awards in January. "CRSI is committed to promoting these excellent designs on behalf of those who have created these structures, and to encourage others to be inspired by their accomplishments."
The International Parking Institute gave UCSC an Award of Excellence, the highest honor in the competition. The award will be presented in Toronto, Ontario, in June.
In 2001, the parking garage received a construction award from the Northern California and Western Nevada Chapter of the American Concrete Institute in the "structural" category.
Watry Design Group was the architect of record on the project, and the firm of Esherick Homsey Dodge and Davis was the design architect. The parking structure opened in March 2001.
