Tarlton has completed a series of projects to restore the Barnes-Jewish Hospital subsurface parking garage at the south end of the Washington University Medical Center campus to top condition. The 400,000 sf, 3-level structure was originally built by Tarlton in the mid-1970s, providing parking for physicians, patients and visitors.
The garage began to require repairs as a result of its age and heavy use. Tarlton employed several procedures as part of the project, including partial- and full-depth concrete repairs, epoxy injection, post-tension tendon repairs and removal/replacement of the traffic membrane.
Additional work has included painting, door and frame replacement, parking control equipment, repairs to the pedestrian tunnel, HVAC system upgrades and a new snow melt system. Tarlton also replaced the fire protection system in the garage.
Phase 2 concrete restoration, including replacement of the lighting throughout the garage, is due for completion this winter.
