Lansing Community College (LCC) is the third largest community college in the State of Michigan, located on a 32-acre, nine-city block area in downtown Lansing. LCC is a comprehensive college focused upon offering learning opportunities in four areas: career and workforce development, general education, developmental education, and personal enrichment. LCC recently had a parking study performed to determine the long-term parking needs of the campus. In May, the LCC Board of Trustees approved bond issuances for the design and construction two parking garages.
Rich & Associates was recently awarded the contract to lead the design and engineering of both parking garages. The first parking garage will be designed and constructed on an existing surface parking lot 23 at the southwest corner of Capitol Ave. and Shiawassee Street. The second parking garage is the replacement of the existing Gannon parking garage located at the corner of N. Grand and Schoolcraft Drive. The Lot 23 Garage as planned is 5 levels, will provide 825 spaces and is scheduled to be completed by July 2021. The Gannon Garage, to be completed by December 2022, will consist of 3 levels and 1,032 spaces. Both garages will provide much needed parking for students, faculty and staff at the College. The projects are being completed under a hybrid Construction Manager at Risk, Design-Build, Integrated Project Delivery construction platform. Rich & Associates, as the prime design firm, is providing parking consulting, architectural and structural engineering design services. Our team’s work will be completed in collaboration with The Christman Company, serving as Construction Manager at Risk / General Contractors.
