James Madison University – Patterson St. Parking Deck

The new JMU Center for the Arts Parking Deck was a Design Build Project. Hurt & Proffitt was responsible for the Civil/Site design for this five-level, 43,630 SF parking structure that has no less than 750 parking spaces. The pre-cast concrete structure was designed to operate in two modes during events for the future performing arts center and the parking facility for patrons of the art center during daily operations to accommodate permit holders.   The new parking facility was constructed on an existing parking lot located between Patterson Street, Warsaw Avenue and the Chesapeake & Western Railway.  The new facility shall abut the future JMU Performing Arts Building currently under construction. 

The Project included the reconstruction of a portion of Warsaw Avenue which looped around the new parking facility; water, electric, and telecommunication service connections, a traffic signal and the design of the storm water management system that was constructed to serve the quantity control for the new parking facility as well as the future Center for the Arts building.  Water quality was addressed through the use of a Stormfilter™ and several Filterras™. 

Hurt & Proffitt provided topographic survey, geotechnical investigation; all civil engineering and site development services including erosion and sediment control plans, demolition plans, utility designs, grading plans, and stormwater management designs; and construction survey.

New Street Parking Deck

This 4-level, 350 space pre-cast concrete parking structure is used primarily for commercial and municipal use.

The New Street Parking Deck was the winner of the 2002 Palladio Award, Commercial and Civic Architecture New Design and Construction.  This is a national award, from Traditional Building Magazine.

Hurt & Proffitt provided a complete structural design, site engineering, construction survey, geotechnical engineering, and materials testing.

James River Bridge

As part of the new U.S. Route 29 bypass around the City of Lynchburg, there had to be built a new bridge across the James River. Actually, two bridges. Each of the two bridges has 13 piers and two abutments. The bridges are some 80 LF above the water. This new James River Bridge is but one of many spans in Virginia that our surveyors have staked out.

Hurt & Proffitt’s surveyors provided construction stakeout for the 2,300 LF of lanes spanning the river and construction stakeout for more than 6,600 LF of four-lane highway.  Hurt & Proffitt’s also provided a network of reference points on the ground from which the bridges were constructed.
