BB&T Center Parking Structure Restoration

Cousins 200 South Coll., LP
Charlotte, NC
Project Size:
1,520 parking spaces, 11 supported levels, one level of slab-on-grade

Project Description

The BB&T Center parking structure (the deck) was constructed around 1975 in Uptown Charlotte, NC. The deck sits next to the BB&T Center Tower, contributing to the spectacular center city architecture and skyline.

The deck contains approximately 1,520 parking spaces for garage users across 11 supported levels and one level of slab-on-grade. The deck is accessed through one of three separate entries and exited via one of two underground tunnels. The exit tunnels discharge patrons along Third Street or S. College Street. Vertical circulation throughout the garage is achieved via a double-threaded helix ramping system, with the exterior circular helix serving as a speed ramp down from level 6 to level 1.

A team of experienced structural engineers with the appropriate forensic background was vital to extracting the right information during the field/on-site review. WGI’s Parking Restoration experts completed an engineering-condition assessment of the parking structure, providing a comprehensive report with observations, discussions, recommendations, and anticipated construction repair budgets to keep the structure serviceable over the next 10 years. WGI engaged in several discussions with the owner to identify critical-path items, value-engineering items, building-code required items, optional improvements, etc.
