CoBank Center is an 11 story, 274,287 sq ft Class A office building with a 6 story precast parking garage partially wrapped under the office tower and extending outside. The tear drop shaped structure is located in Village Center Station, a multi-use Transit Oriented Development (TOD) with three office buildings totaling 700,000 sq ft and 50,000 sq ft of retail.
With a CIP core, the office building is all precast – precast beams, spandrels, double tees, and inverted tees. Roof framing is also precast. The 332,000 sq ft garage provides space for 970 cars and has three bays with an internal ramp in the center bay. Double tees in the garage were field topped. Both the parking structure and office tower share the same lateral force resisting system. Engineers were also able to utilize a precast insulated panel wall system that minimized the number of shear walls to create a more open feel in the garage.
