Challenges of Parking Structure Construction in Kansas City’s Mixed-Use Areas

Undertaking large construction projects like parking structures in mixed-use spaces is a daunting task for any developer. When building in highly trafficked areas, unique challenges arise. 

McCownGordon Construction brings successful experience to any parking structure construction in Kansas City and across our service regions.

Starting a parking garage construction project without a thorough understanding of potential challenges can lengthen your timeline and add costs along the way. With our parking garage construction expertise, we guide you through the decision-making process to make your vision a reality.

Common challenges faced during parking structure construction projects

Building in highly trafficked mixed-use areas creates complications for construction. 

We offer invaluable insight into tight and occupied jobsites from the earliest preconstruction phases of your project through successful construction.

Accounting for construction’s impact

Every member of the McCownGordon team understands their responsibility for minimizing potential disruptions to nearby businesses and the importance of establishing open and clear communication in advance. 

Businesses located near garage construction rely on day-to-day operations continuing as normal while construction is in progress. From the beginning stages of the project, we plan ahead to eliminate disruptions—especially to pedestrian foot traffic, package deliveries and trash pick-up. 

Some complications cannot be anticipated and can interrupt even the best laid plans. When that happens, we proactively communicate with those businesses as early as possible. Helping them understand what to expect eases stress and anxiety that often occurs for businesses operating near construction.

Ensuring pedestrian safety through construction

On every McCownGordon project, commitment to safety is paramount. When building in high trafficked areas, we uphold the responsibility of pedestrian safety without impacting access to businesses in the area.

We approach access issues from the perspective of those with the most difficulty navigating such spaces. We ensure everyone can move freely while avoiding the construction site itself with thoughtful placement of ramps and clear signage. In addition to a focus on pedestrian safety throughout the construction phase, the entire parking garage design should emphasize the ability to walk safely from the parking garage to surrounding businesses or other points in the area.
