PJ Dick managed construction of a 300,000-sf, 575-car integral garage adjacent to a railroad and transit center. In addition to providing CM at risk services, PJ Dick self performed concrete and wood framing for the three-level, post tensioned parking structure, which features one level on grade and two levels above grade, all supporting a 400,000-sf, five-floor apartment building.
Unique features of the project’s construction include:
- Cast-in-place concrete for 575 parking spots and parking ramps to provide structural support, a unique method of construction for a site of this size
- Concrete pours of 7,500 cubic yards of a special mix of high, early strength concrete
- Night-time concrete pours over the Norfolk Southern railway staged within the Martin Luther King Jr. Busway
- Installation of more than 1,000 plumbing sleeves and wood framing anchor bolts in the top post-tension deck to facilitate the apartments building above, which required detailed coordination with the designers and apartment construction teams
- Use of over 600 tons of rebar and 80,000 lineal feet of post-tension cable
- Total of 15,000 cubic yards of concrete were used on the project including: 2,050 cubic yards of slab-on-grade, 8,150 cubic yards of slab on deck elevated form deck, and 3,200 cubic yards of walls and columns.
