PARKING STRUCTURE NO. 3
The Parking Structure No. 3 Renovation was based on the Condition Assessment Report and Repair Recommendations prepared by Desman Associates dated August 25, 2009. The project completed in November, 2010 was the first phase of the repairs recommended in the report. The six level parking structure was constructed on Huguelet Ave. circa 1980 to serve a medical facility which is located within the campus. The 277,000 sq ft structure was constructed in two stages. The first three level stage was constructed circa 1980 of precast concrete. The second three level stage was constructed circa 1885 of steel framing with concrete parking surface supported by steel decking. The repairs included in the first phase were based on the most critical need and facility management decisions to maintain ongoing use of the facilities during this and subsequent construction.
This phase of construction was focused primarily on levels 4, 5 and 6 with some work done at other locations due to conditions deemed to be critical or an emergency. Cracked and delaminated concrete floor slab conditions were repaired with full depth patches which included replacing the steel decking. Cracks were routed and filled with sealant. Levels 5 and 6 were coated with a traffic bearing water proofing membrane. Miscellaneous repairs were made to the stair towers, barrier cables and 150 deteriorated wheel stops were replaced. During the construction process, it was decided to complete as much work as possible on the upper floors in order to minimize disruption of use during subsequent construction. This required postponing work on lower levels in order to keep this phase of work within budget, allowing future phases of construction less intrusive.
