2006 Award of Merit, Strengthening Category, International Concrete Repair Institute

The 1210-30 Washington Street Garage is a three-level reinforced concrete parking structure with approximately 25,000 sq ft per level. The two-way slabs are supported by interior concrete columns with capitals and exterior concrete masonry bearing walls. The garage exhibited excessive deflections of the elevated decks at bay midspans, and extensive concrete cracking and concrete spalling. The owners retained SGH to perform a comprehensive survey and investigation involving structural analysis, load testing, remedial CFRP-strengthening design, and construction administration during repairs.
