Wayne State University Parking Structure #1
The Parking and Transportation services Department of Wayne State University (WSU) has the responsibility to provide well-maintained, safe parking facilities and transportation for employees, students and visitors. The present parking system is comprised of eight structures and 44 surface lots. The current capacity of parking spaces is approximately 13,000. Parking and Transportation Services provides parking services to students, staff and visitors. Parking Services is a self-supporting auxiliary that is not funded by state taxes or student tuition. Parking operations, maintenance and development expenses are funded by revenue generated from the sale of parking services.
RAM Construction Services was contracted to perform concrete repairs on WSU’s Parking Structure #1. The scope of work included hydro demolition and overhead concrete repairs. Some of the challenges we ran into included the placement of the equipment and the clean-up process. With the equipment being staged at ground level and the repairs being spread out between levels one through six, positioning of the equipment and accessibility was crucial to our overall schedule. The clean-up process was challenging because it generated hundreds of yards of slurry and it had to be directed/moved to the ground level from all levels above. The water run off became an issue so we had to use the existing floor drains to pipe the run off down to the ground level where it could be filtered and disposed of properly. The overhead repairs had fewer challenges and we used the P.A.M. Machine for the demolition and utilized our "“shot-crete” methods to place all of the new materials.
