Project Duration: 8 months

The Daffodil Garage is a 3.5 level parking structure located on the Greater Baltimore Medical Center campus in Towson, MD.  The original garage was built in 1976 as a post-tensioned reinforced concrete flat-plate structure.  One unusual feature of this garage was that the entrance and exit were on the top level and access to the lower levels was made possible by up/down ramps located on the east and west ends of the structure.  A second phase of construction took place in 1993, which involved the addition of a helical access ramp on the west end of the garage and the installation of post-tension “infill slabs” at the locations of the original ramps.  After years of neglect and due to some odd design features and questionable decisions on the part of the facilities management at the time, the garage was in poor condition and in serious need of repair to in order to assure the continued life/safety of all garage occupants.
