Circa 730 Parking Garage Restoration
After completing a multi-million-dollar renovation on the office tower, the owners of the Circa 730 complex were looking to also renovate the top level of the parking garage. WGI’s Restoration Team (Andrew Kong, Juan Sanchez, and Attila Gergely) was engaged by the owner’s representative to lead the garage’s renovation effort.
WGI’s scope of work included an engineering assessment, structural analysis, preparation of construction documents, and construction administration services.
During the engineering assessment process, WGI outlined multiple issues affecting the top level of the garage. The 60-year-old garage was in relatively poor condition, yet performing as expected for a parking garage of its age and construction type. The top level of the garage was aesthetically unappealing, exhibiting structural distress and under-reinforced structural elements, among other issues.
In response to these concerns, WGI’s Restoration Team developed a repair program based on the engineering assessment’s findings, addressing the garage’s multiple aesthetic and structural issues at the top level. WGI’s repair approach was outlined in two categories:
- Structural repairs
- Preventive maintenance repairs
