Salem State University Receives Bronze Level Parksmart Certification


DESMAN was honored to receive Bronze Level Certification from Parksmart for the Salem State University Parking Garage. Patrick Wells accepted the certification on behalf of DESMAN during a ceremony at the International Parking Institute Expo in New Orleans. The Bronze Level Certification is awarded to new construction projects that have reached the allotted points to become a Parksmart certified parking garage.

Located in Salem, Massachusetts, this parking garage started off with extensive studies to take into consideration the best land use, access, parking demand, traffic pattern and many other concerns before deciding that a lower lot was best. Salem is a 799-parking space garage with four supported levels. It is designed with space for ridesharing, low-Emitting, fuel-efficient, and alternative fuel vehicles. There are five EV charging stations to allow EV owners vehicle charging.

As the Architect/Engineer of Record for the Garage, DESMAN worked closely with the designers (Dimeo Construction) to meet a variety of architectural and structural challenges and to provide Salem State University with a fully functional and attractive parking facility.

Congratulations to the DESMAN team on a great project!

Team members include: Norm Goldman (CT), Principal-In-Charge; John Rom (NY), Designer; Tom Basile (NY), Architect; Altin Haxhaj (CT), Architect; Joe Clark (CT), Structural Engineer; Wes Wilson (MA), Engineer; and Eric Haggett (IL), Parksmart Advisor.
