NJ Transit | General Office Building (GOB) Parking Deck Replacement
SYSTRA is currently developing the preliminary design for a new higher capacity deck with LEED certified day room.
SYSTRA was tasked with inspecting and providing emergency repairs to mitigate structural deficiencies to the existing parking structure as well as providing a safe structure for the users. It was determined to be economically unfeasible for the NJ Transit to bring the parking structure back to a state-of-good-repair and to provide upgrades to meet the facilities growing needs and sustainability aspirations; as a result, the structure was scheduled to be replaced.
Green initiatives to be proposed include an extensive vegetated roof with open-air employee lounge area over the adjacent bus garage as well as provisions for a full photovoltaic array on the new parking structure. The new design will increase parking capacity by over 30% and will improve the daily operations of the NJ Transit employees by promoting accessibility, sustainability, health and above all safety f or the users.
