SunTrust Plaza Parking Garage

“I am writing to recognize the excellent work performed by Rich & Associates for Rollins College in the design of the SunTrust Plaza Parking Garage…The result was both cost effective and functional garage that met the high standards of the College and the City of Winter Park.

The design serves the commercial office and retail building, Rollins students and staff, as well as being open to the general public. The multi-use nature of the facility added to its design complexity. We’re proud of the fact that the garage has won awards from the Keep Winter Park Beautiful Associated Builders and Contractors, the International Parking Association, and the Pre-cast Concrete Institute….

We have received numerous requests for information on the facility from developers, designers and property owners across the country. Everyone is most impressed with its design and functionality. The Rich & Associates team as a pleasure to work with.”

…The City [is] fortunate to have two distinctive, aesthetically pleasing parking structures that will blend very well with the Victorian architectural characteristics of the community… Rich & Associates maintained a high degree of professional service continually to the City.

Tower Park Garage, Woodman of the World Life Insurance Society

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to tell you about the excellent service which Rich & Associates has provided to the Alfred G. Thomsen Company as Project Coordinator for the Woodman of the World…

The garage has exceeded the requirements that were established during our initial planning meetings and we’re very pleased with the day-to-day operation of the Tower Park Garage.

Based upon the design capabilities and expertise demonstrated by Rich & Associates at Tower Park, they were retained to provide all of the architectural and engineering services for the new 596-stall Woodman Park Garage, which Woodmen is presently constructing…We’ re not only impressed with the technical knowledge and expertise which Rich & Associates possess: but in addition, their ownership and operation of parking garages for their own account permits them to incorporate actual day-to-day operation and ownership experiences into their designs, plans and specifications.

These day-to-day operation and ownership experiences are very, very, valuable; and to our knowledge are only available through Rich & Associates. Based upon the excellent service, advice and counsel which we have received from Rich & Associates, it is without hesitancy that we can recommend them to any owner planning to construct a first-class parking structure on budget and on time.”
