Essentia Health Parking Ramp
The new parking structure provides space for up to 480 cars and supports patient parking for the Essentia Clinics with easy skyway access to St. Mary’s Medical Center. The parking structure has entrances from both 2nd Street and 5th Avenue allowing convenient access.
The $20 million, four-level parking structure was built by Knutson Construction in two-phase with a cast-in-place concrete construction method. The exterior façade is architectural precast concrete panels with a two-tone color and a combination of sandblast and smooth acid etch finishes.
Wells Concrete was the architectural precast concrete supplier. The architectural precast panels were cast at Wells Concrete’s PCI certified manufacturing facility in Albany, MN. Over 150
architectural precast panels were installed by Wells Concrete in conjunction with Knutson’s two-phase construction plan.
Driving down 2nd Street, it’s hard not to notice this architecturally attractive parking structure.
