The Mall of America, located in Bloomington, MN, is the second largest shopping mall in the United States. Construction was completed in 1992, with a large subsequent expansions completed in 2013 and 2016. At 4.9 million square feet the mall houses 500 retail stores, restaurants, theme park, cinemas and an aquarium. The mall hosts roughly 42 million visitors a year.
The sheer size of the mall’s parking structures is a challenge in itself. With 12,000 parking spaces used by 42 million visitors a year, the ramps are in need of constant monitoring and maintenance. RAM has been fortunate to work with the mall’s management over the past few years to tackle their ongoing maintenance needs.
