The University of Akron, North Parking Deck

Giving Students Easy Access to Campus Life

Welty oversaw construction on this five-level parking deck, centrally located at the University of Akron’s main campus. As a result of Welty’s cost saving solutions, a glass-enclosed pedestrian bridge was added to the architectural plans, a concept that coincides with the campus master plan to create easy access and connect students to other UA facilities. Students are sheltered from the elements as they cross over Buchtel Avenue and head toward the heart of the campus.

Along with other projects, Welty Building Company completed the five-level North Campus Parking Deck in time to open for our Fall Semester. We are most pleased that all the Welty projects were delivered on schedule and on budget with a high level of professional service and attention to project detail and quality.
