UCLA Medical Building & Surgery Center

Automated Vehicle Storage/ Retrieval system for UCLA parking garage

Stonemark is managing preconstruction and construction phase services for the design and installation of an Automated Vehicle Storage/Retrieval System (AVSRS) for a UCLA medical building and surgical center in Santa Monica. The building has a 54,255 SF subterranean parking garage with six levels and 241 spaces. Scope of work includes removal of the existing defective automated equipment and extensive modifications to the building structure, mechanical, electrical and fire protection systems to accommodate the new automated parking system, as well as procurement and management of the AVSRS supply and installation. The scope of work included complex multi-party negotiations with stakeholders to obtain consensus on an effective retrofit design that accommodated all concerns within an operating surgical center.

Our firm collaborated with Stonemark on the complete exterior renovation of this 65-unit faculty housing project that had suffered extensive water intrusion problems for over 25 years. While Stonemark championed the overall repair scheme, architecturally it was a challenging project. The buildings were of a contemporary style that permitted little tolerance for waterproofing detailing. Stonemark’s expertise was invaluable to the team in developing solutions to these technical requirements. As construction managers, Stonemark coordinated the board, UCSB, homeowners, contractors and entire project to its successful completion. Their oversight kept the project running smoothly and allowed us to focus on design and give the Client not only leak free buildings but great overall value.
