Tarlton has completed a series of projects to restore the Plaza Garage at the south end of the Washington University Medical Center campus to top condition. The 400,000 sf, subsurface garage was originally built by Tarlton in the mid-1970s, providing parking for physicians, patients and visitors.
The 3-level 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.
