This nine-story, cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete design/build parking garage adds 250 much needed parking spaces and 4,000 square feet of retail tenant space to downtown Indianapolis. CE Solutions selected post-tensioning techniques to best match floor-to-floor heights with the existing garage, improve durability and reduce columns for this tight site with limited staging area. The structure was designed to accommodate two future office levels. CE Solutions extended the garage’s life expectancy and minimized maintenance requirements by increasing concrete reinforcement protection, adding a calcium nitrite corrosion inhibitor to the concrete mix, and applying a penetrating saline surface seal to the parking surface. The large-mat foundation (2,000 cubic yards of concrete) required a special concrete mix using ground granulated blast-furnace slag to minimize heat generation during the curing process.
