  • Structural Firm: Ficcadenti & Waggoner
  • Certified Installer: Construction Services, Inc.

  • Geotechnical Firm: GMU Geotechnical, Inc.

Cause: Four story parking structure suffering distress due to a damaged storm drain line which led to oversaturation of fill soils, causing portions of first level to settle.

Scope of Repair: Repaired panelized concrete wall sections by installing MacLean Dixie helical anchors under existing panel footings to a depth of 25 lf. Lifted & releveled existing panels, filled void beneath footing with non shrink slurry grout. Backfilled, compacted excavations & replaced concrete removed.

Work was performed during normal business hours, with minimal disruption of the use of the parking structure. Limited access required use of a hand held installation rig along with skid steer tractor.
