University of Georgia Carlton Street

This 820-space parking deck is the fastest deck to be constructed at The Univer¬sity of Georgia. The deck was built in just a mere 126 days, achieved only with Choate’s creative coordination.

The site was challenged with 16 feet of cut. Atypically, the piles were installed and then the excess fill was removed during the site work. This allowed the project to begin construction immediately after the structural design of the piles. As the piles were being installed, the utility work accrued simultaneously. Two crews worked around the clock to install the precast panels during the day and the topping slabs would be poured at night.

Having to be completed to accommodate parking requirements for the first Univer¬sity of Georgia football game, this project was a major success for both Choate and the University.
