Located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, Braeswood Garage is a world class parking facility that utilizes many innovative design and technology components to provide a high level of service for patrons. Dynamic message signs with a loop counting system work in unison to alert garage patrons of the exact number of parking spaces available for each garage level. The external express ramp traffic system works in conjunction with the space availability system to help facilitate the rapid movement in and out of the garage during peak rush hours.
Walter P Moore overcame many challenges during design. Our civil and structural engineers collaborated to design a garage with a structured slab over an existing storage pond. We also coordinated with Harris County Flood Control District and the owner to locate the garage within the proposed $450 million Brays Bayou widening project and the proposed plans for a future office building on the same site.
