Design of the Verde at Greenbelt Station parking structure offered numerous challenges even during the bid process, as features including precast planters hung off the spandrels, separate cornice pieces, and a non-repetitive mix of architectural colors and textures were added to the design. Shockey’s flexibility and expertise in handling complex parking structure projects ensured that the changes were quickly and seamlessly incorporated into the estimating process, and a price and schedule were developed that would meet the Owner’s budget and overall construction schedule, as well as aesthetic vision for the Verde at Greenbelt Station residential community.
