Cochren Foundation and Repair Co. provided a design build proposal to restore 24,000 square feet of underground parking structure. This included precast slab replacement, realigning and reinforcing foundation walls, vertical and horizontal reinforcement, installation of masonry walls and privacy fences.
The design build proposal provided by Cochren Foundation and Repair Co. saved this owner 33% over previous tendered bids.
The 9’-0” high masonry foundation walls were not attached to the precast roof structure. Lateral pressure from backfill caused displacement of the wall.
The roof deck was lifted while the masonry walls were pushed back into vertical alignment. The walls were secured to the precast roof deck.
