This report presents information and tips on the design and construction of steel parking structures including information related to seismic behavior and design of such parking structures. Steel parking structures have been used throughout the world particularly in seismic regions such as Japan. This report is prepared to provide the state of the art knowledge of design of steel parking structures in general and particularly design of such structures in seismic regions. First, a summary of issues related to design of parking structures is provided. Then issues specific to design of steel parking structures such as design of deck systems, painting information, and fire resistance are discussed. Finally, notes on seismic design of steel parking structure are presented.
