WACO, TX-The Dallas team for McCarthy Building Cos. has ticketed an August ground-breaking for its second parking garage project at Baylor University in Waco. The plan is to move the crew across campus when one job wraps up and the other, a $9.9-million project, begins.

At the peak of construction, the McCarthy crew will be erecting 30 to 35 pre-cast concrete panels per day, Chris Peck, Texas division vice president for the St. Louis-based firm, tells GlobeSt.com. The 360,000-sf design/build parking facility will be situated on the far eastern quadrant of the campus and next to the newly christened 508,000-sf Baylor Sciences Building. The garage delivers in August 2004.

The East Campus Parking Facility, with 1,170 spaces, is a four-story design with the look of an office building with a detailed exterior facade. McCarthy’s Gary Akin is the project director; Carl Walker Inc. of Dallas is the architect and engineering firm.

“As Baylor continues to enhance its campus environment, parking structures are being located on the outer edges of campus, opening the interior for malls and foot traffic,” Akin said in a press release. The West Campus Parking Facility, which is nearing completion, is a four-level design with 1,195 spaces. It stands at the intersection of University Parks Drive and Dutton Avenue.
