Parking Deck Background

A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for professional design services was published in November 2011; eleven statements of qualification were received in December.  The selection committee interviewed four firms, ultimately selecting the team led by Garver Engineers.  This selection will cover all three phases of the overall outcome of a designed parking deck in Fayetteville's Entertainment District: Phase I, Site Selection and Preliminary Design; Phase 2, Schematic Design and Project Development; and Phase 3, Construction Administration Services.

On February 21, 2012, Fayetteville City Council approved the selection of Garver Engineers, LLC -- in association with Carl Walker, Inc., AFHJ Architects + KB Architecture, and Grubbs, Hoskyn, Barton & Wyatt, Inc. -- to provide engineering services for a Entertainment District Parking Deck (Resolution No. 42-12). 

Three public input sessions regarding the site selection of the proposed parking deck were held on April 4 and April 19, 2012. Sessions consisted of a brief presentation, walking tour of the potential site locations, and a question and answer period. The PowerPoint presentation, project information sheet, and comments summary are listed below.
