There is a bok by PCI "Parking Structures: Recommended Practice for
and Construction"  This book gives you the funtional part of Parking
(Architectural) as well as the structural approach recommended.

Ïn North Fl.  I've seen a method by PSi, Inc.  Prestressed Systems Inc.
which the joints are minimize. It is partially P/S for positive moments
regularly reinforced for Live Load. Its a system of P/S joists and
Beams  Try 813-621-3937 or 1-800-432-8712 (these are old numbers and
be changed by now)

Good luck

and look forward to the learning opportunity.  Whether we would do the
complete layout and design or only the structural design has not been

Can anyone recommend a good text that deals with parking garage designs,
especially the connection details?

Also, is there a rule of thumb that is generally used for the estimated
construction cost and the design fee?  The project is located in Florida
