This month, the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Southern California will start construction on a $10.1 million parking facility. McCarthy Building Companies was chosen to head the project, which is the first component of a 15-year master plan for the overhaul of the campus.

The design for the 244,135-square-foot, five-level structure has room for parking 750 cars, and includes a rooftop helipad.

"Because the parking structure is being constructed within a heavily trafficked area, we will be coordinating our construction traffic operations with hospital facilities personnel and the governing agencies," said Alan Carroll, executive vice president of McCarthy's parking division. "This will allow the construction process to move forward with minimal impact on the campus operations."

The parking structure will be constructed with post-tensioned, cast-in-place concrete decks and sheer walls. The structure will also include three elevators, one of which is specifically designed to serve as a trauma elevator. The project also includes landscaping in the front of the structure and several other architectural features.
