MULTISTORY DECK INCLUDES SECURITY FEATURES
MSSA designed a 600-space parking deck for the Alliance Academy for Innovation. Topographical challenges and site constraints limiting required parking quantities on ground level were overcome by providing a multistory parking deck. The project won first place in the Associated General Contractors 2020 Build Georgia Awards.
The Alliance Academy for Innovation of Cumming-Forsyth County opened in the 2018-2019 school year with only 9th and 10th grade students. Because there were not many student drivers, a gravel parking lot met the school’s needs for the first year. The following year, however, the school year began with a new three-story precast concrete parking deck with brick spandrel panels. In a school, safety is important. This design includes closed circuit television security monitoring throughout, a glass elevator and open stairwells for visibility and supervision, emergency lighting, and phone boxes for emergency calls.
