Design of a parking garage, sperating the building into many parts, resulted in a highly functional and flexible low cost structure. The authors recongnize that the principle of unit buildings can be applied to any type of structure. A flat slab readily adapts itself to this principle and in this design it was again proved that the methods of analysis recommended by ACI can be applied to a slab of unconventional nature to obtain adaquate safe design.
