At this year's IPMI Conference and Tradeshow, we look forward to giving you a behind the scenes look at the LAX Economy Parking Structure, recently recognized by the IPMI Award of Excellence program. 

Watry Design Principal Michael Pendergrass joins Swinerton's Jeff Goodermote and Gensler's Juan Baez for "Delivering a Red Carpet Parking Experience at LAX." They will walk you through the design and delivery of the 4,300 stall parking structure and mobility hub that serves as the first completed component of LAX's massive landside transformation. 

Delivered via progressive design build, the 1.73 million square foot facility posed unique challenges, including site constraints, complexities from being one of three major simultaneous capital projects and significant changes in programming that needed to be solved within the original schedule and budget. 

During the conference, don't forget to stop by booth 420 in the Expo Hall to scratch and win prizes, including a gift basket from Cafe du Monde!

We'll see you in New Orleans, July 24-27!
