As Burnsville’s Heart of the City downtown area continued to develop, plans for additional parking to support the 54-acre mixed-use district were initiated. Timing of additional parking was to be coordinated with a new 1,000-seat Performing Arts Center.
Within a tight time frame, Bolton & Menk provided design, bidding, and construction administration for the new 357-stall parking deck. Quick action was taken to work with multiple committees, commissions, and the city council to develop plans that were compliant with the Heart of the City design standards and the city’s planned unit development process.
Since that time, an expansion to the parking deck provided an opportunity for volume control to meet the city’s water quality standards. Bolton & Menk designed an infiltration system to take flow off-line of an existing storm sewer system and divert approximately 3,300 cubic feet of water into an underground infiltration system. The design allowed the volume/infiltration requirements from two separate sites to be managed in a regional treatment system.
