Convention Center Parking Garage and Retail

The new Convention Center parking garage and retail building is one of the many new structures constructed in downtown Amarillo, Texas.  Located between the new Convention Center Hotel and the new Xcel Energy building, the 4+ floor parking garage provides needed parking for Hodgetown Stadium, Civic Center, Convention Center Hotel, and Globe News Center for the Performing Arts. Over 26,000 SF of retail space covers 2 sides of the new structure which will include restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.

  • The work performed by the Lavin group has met all of our expectations, time and budget restraints. We would not hesitate to request their services on future projects... - Jerry Danforth, Director of Facilities & C.I.P, City of Amarillo

Truckwash Express

To meet a need driven by the large number of trucks serving the Bakken Oil fields, the Truckwash Express was designed for fully automated truck wash equipment that could service up to 3 trucks at one time and would facilitate heavy mud and snow removal.  Given the extreme weather conditions in the area, the facility was constructed with pre-cast insulated concrete panels and features in-ground radiant heating at the exterior entrances to avoid snow and ice accumulation.Ra
