St. John’s Street Parking Structure Utilizes Advanced Technology
The new St. John’s Street parking garage in downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina utilizes state-of-the-art C-GRID® carbon fiber flange reinforcement. The carbon fiber grid replaces conventional steel mesh in the flanges of the precast concrete CarbonCast Double Tees. The epoxy-coated carbon fiber grid is able to resist corrosion, offering superior durability. In addition, the technology allows for a reduction in weight of structures by up to 8%, which can reduce foundation costs and seismic loads.
The multilevel parking structure features integral architectural precast finishes complimented with hand-laid brick. The structure is designed to serve a variety of patrons, from students and faculty attending the George Dean Johnson Business School to visitors of the Chapman Cultural Center and Marriott guests.
The project team included: architecture by LS3P Associates and engineering by Kimley-Horn and Associates, with Choate Construction as the general contractor and Metromont Corporation as the precast concrete manufacturer.
