Abstract/Artist Statement

Since its move to Stockton in 1924, University of the Pacific has been providing high level education and professional knowledge to students. Today, the Stockton campus of the University of the Pacific provides these services to over 5000 students in over 80 different majors. According to the City of Stockton, University of the Pacific has reached its maximum service capacity as it is lacking in available parking spaces. This lack of parking space prevents University of the Pacific from increasing the size of its student or faculty body. With plans to build new athletics facilities in place of one of its largest existing parking lots, parking availability on campus will only become sparser. Furthermore, the existing parking lot and neighboring field are prone to constant flooding during high intensity rain periods. PBS Engineering is prepared to offer a design for a one story, above ground parking structure and a redesign of existing drainage and storm water systems for existing parking lot #2 and the Sunken Field. The parking structure design would allow for the construction of new athletics facilities above without having to reduce or relocate parking availability, and the new storm water systems will significantly reduce the flooding of the Sunken Field.
