Constellation Group LLC has been involved with this Convention Center since its opening. In partnership with Stegman Engineering, PA, CGLLC is responsible for the preventive maintenance and structural repairs on this structure. To date, exterior waterproofing; and repairs to correct deficient rebar design have been executed. Future repairs may include epoxy overlays and carbon-fiber reinforcing.
Below are photographs of leveling of six spans at the front elevation of the building. All repairs were conducted from underneath the walkway to minimize interruption to this busy facility. Permanent shoring posts were installed on AB Chance helical pile supported foundations. Four 30 kip working capacity piles were installed under each of the foundations. Lifting and leveling of the slabs was performed with 150 ton hydraulic jacks. CGLLC and Dennis (Butch) Triplett (www.dennistriplettllc.com) performed the initial test on timber cribbing to confirm the repairs would perform satisfactorily.
