Penn State University West Campus Parking Garage and Infrastructure

1 2 3 4 5 6 / 6

The team lead planning, design, and construction efforts of the roadway, garage, and all related site/civil improvements. This is the first project that will be realized from the ongoing PSU College of Engineering Master Plan.

The Clayco and Lamar Johnson Collaborative design-build team was selected to design and construct The Penn State University Park West Campus Parking Structure on the West side of the campus to accommodate campus growth. The project includes the extension of White Course Drive and a new major roadway connection from West College Avenue to the parking structure, including resulting signalization and other site/civil/landscape improvements. The scope of work also includes expansion of the existing stormwater detention basin on West Campus. It is anticipated that the parking structure will accommodate approximately 1,380 to 1,670 parking spots.

Implementing a design/build delivery model, LJC and Clayco worked closely with Penn State’s Office of Physical Plant, Transportation Services, and CATA teams to design Penn State’s West Campus Parking Deck at University Park. Located in the heart of West Campus, this project is the key to the successful expansion needed for the College of Engineering and overall campus growth.

The project is integrating with several other programmatic efforts at the University, including a College of Engineering Master Plan and associated Traffic Impact Studies.

Beyond These Walls

The Penn State‘s West Campus Garage jobsite welcomed a senior-level Civil Engineering Geotech Class for a tour of the project. Project Engineer Cailyn McCarthy and Project Coordinator Jackie Lepore led the tour and highlighted the site’s progress. An exciting addition to this event was Alexis Lubman, a senior in the touring class and current Clayco intern. Alexis is set to be hired as a full-time Project Engineer at Clayco following graduation.
