LDS Nauvoo Temple Parking Terrace

Lund-Ross constructed a parking terrace for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) in Nauvoo, Illinois. The two-level garage and a viewing plaza were built on a riverside location in front of the Nauvoo LDS Temple.

The church requested that Lund-Ross handle both the design and construction of the structure in order to expedite the project timeline. A design/build contract was created and a local workforce was mobilized in Nauvoo to handle the demanding schedule.

The lower level of the parking terrace is partially below grade and can hold up to 200 vehicles. The deck-to-deck height is much higher than a typical parking garage and creates a more open layout. Brick facing on the pre-cast concrete, extensive landscaping surrounding the garage and a large restroom facility add to the parking structure’s list of unique features.

Lund-Ross successfully completed the parking terrace with the cooperation of local subcontractors and the assistance of local LDS staff. Lund-Ross previously completed the successful Winter Quarters Temple in Omaha for the LDS Church.
