Structural Steel Casebook: Deakin University Carpark
Deakin University is a multi-campus university in Victoria. Like many universities, hospitals and shopping centres it had a problem with inadequate parking facilities at its Burwood Campus.
It was decided to construct a three-level (two suspended) carpark on approximately half the land allocated in the master plan. This provided a total number of 587 car spaces, including 11 spaces for people with disabilities. An allowance was made for two additional levels of suspended parking to be added when funding permitted. The carpark was designed to be self-funding from the parking revenue.
