Alexandria House Garage and Plaza Renovations

SK&A provided consulting services for the rehabilitation of the garage and plaza at the 23-story Alexandria House Condominiums.  Spanned over 28 months, the rehabilitation required major structural and waterproofing repairs to the three-level cast-in-place, concrete post-tensioned garage structure and plaza.

Highlights of the project included the removal and replacement of approximately 34,000 linear feet of post-tensioning cables, the installation of almost 8,000 linear feet of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) strips for flexural strengthening and slab crack control, and the removal and re-construction of a 15,500 sf plaza deck area that was severely deteriorated and needed to be upgraded for fire truck loading.

The project was given the Award of Excellence in the Garage/Plaza Repair Category from the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) in 2005.
