GO Transit / Metrolinx
Structural Engineering Consultant
The Burlington GO Station Parking Structure provides approximately 800 parking spaces on four suspended levels and one at grade level. The structure was designed for three future vertical expansion levels and a future bridge linking the parking structure to the station platforms. The parking structure was the first in a series of parking structures built by GO Transit.
The superstructure for the garage includes four parking decks constructed with pre-cast, prestressed concrete double-tees, a feature stair and elevator tower, and two ancillary stair towers. The structure currently has precast, prestressed concrete double-tee roof that can be converted to a parking deck in the future.
Challenge: Ensuring compliance with the Conservation Authority and City of Burlington requirements with respect to construction adjacent to a protected watercourse; and to obtain site plan approval respectively.
Solution: Entuitive staff, while employed at a previous firm, worked closely with Metrolinx Construction Management office to provide necessary back up information for negotiations with Conservation Authority and the City of Burlington. This was done within the specified design development and design schedule, which resulted in an on-time construction start. Note this was the first parking garage constructed in the Metrolinx system.
