Oracle Parking Garage, Reston, VA
Davis, Carter, Scott was selected to design Oracle’s regional headquarters in Reston, Virginia. Oracle had developed a strategic plan to meet its long-term facility needs and selected a campus-like site that would accommodate future growth. DCS developed the master plan for the 22-acre site that would grow to three additional buildings. Oracle would eventually develop 410,000 SF with the option build an additional 340,000 SF with an adjacent garage to support up to 3,500 employees. The Phase I Garage was built during the second phase of the Office building. The garage design mirrors the architecture of the office buildings in detail and materials that echo a Jeffersonian style. This approach is in response to Oracle’s desire to present both a conservative image to its governmental clients and a more modern image, associated with Oracle’s leading edge core business, to the general public. The precast garage accommodates 2,000 cars on three above grade levels that step down with the topography of the site. Phase II of the parking garage provided an additional 492 space by extending 2 stories of the parking structure. The addition came 3 years after the first phase. The Garage was fully operational during construction thanks to careful planning and coordination by Davis Carter Scott.
