New Parking Garage Project
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS
This project consisted of the construction of a new four (4) level Parking Garage with a total gross area of approximately 408,000 square feet. The development area was bounded by Surf Lane to the north, Seagull Lane to the east, Oso Lane to the south, and the Seahorse Parking Lot/Anchor Lane to the west. The principal structural loads were supported on drilled piers while the first floor slab on grade was constructed on an improved building pad consisting of four (4) feet of compacted select fill. Levels 2, 3 and 4 were constructed of precast concrete. Structural steel framing was also utilized in specific areas of the project such as the stairwells and for attaching the precast members. Arias performed construction materials testing services that included field and laboratory testing of soil, concrete, and masonry including precast elements as well as mortar and grout; earthwork and site preparation observation and testing; fill placement observation and testing; drilled pier excavation and installation observation along with associated reinforcing steel observation; and structural steel observation.
