The Cabarrus County Parking Deck is comprised of a cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete structure including a slab on grade, plus 4 elevated levels, 2 stair towers, 1 elevator tower, and structural steel canopy framing. The structure’s foundation system consists of grade beams supported by deep foundations (auger cast piles).
Kleinfelder incorporated state-of-the-art concrete maturity testing equipment to determine real-time concrete strengths as related to post-tensioned concrete stressing procedures. The equipment transmitted data via web-based software with email alerts to the project team indicating when the next construction activity could occur. The real-time notifications enabled the contractor to maintain an accelerated construction schedule. Kleinfelder utilized field iPads to collect data and photo documentation of construction activities for detailed and accurate project records, which were uploaded daily for the team's reference.
