Philadelphia, PA – The Harman Group (THG), is pleased to announce the grand opening of the new Woodland Garage at Abington Hospital on June 29, 2021. This new, five-level, precast concrete garage provides 247 parking spaces for hospital patients, visitors and staff, and includes a pedestrian bridge to the Hospital. The project consisted of the demolition and replacement of the former 50 year old Woodland Parking Garage on the same site.
The Harman Group provided parking consulting and structural engineering services for this Abington-Jefferson Health garage. Prime consultant, Ewing Cole, provided architectural and mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection engineering services. LF Driscoll was the construction manager.
The new Woodland Garage is designed to accommodate a two- level vertical expansion in the future. The garage includes electric vehicle parking stalls with charging stations as well as energy-efficient LED lighting, self-pay on foot stations and climate-controlled elevator lobbies on each level.
“The Harman Group was able to bring its extensive parking planning and design knowledge to bear on this challenging replacement garage and pedestrian bridge project on a small, tight site immediately adjacent to Hospital,” said William Kavanagh, Director of Parking Planning and Design of The Harman Group.
The Harman Group has extensive experience in the design of both stand alone and mixed use parking garages that serve a variety of occupancies. Project examples include the St. Barnabas Medical Center Parking Garage, the SORA West Parking Garages and the Oxford Multimodal Transportation Garage.
