Columbus Center Parking Garage

Pier 5 Parking Garage_Baltimore.jpg
Project Overview: 
The Columbus Center Parking Garage is a 7-level, 207,000 square foot double helix parking garage that provides parking for approximately 640 cars. The elevated ramps and parking areas are constructed using one-way post-tensioned concrete slabs that are supported on post-tensioned concrete beams. The skin of the garage was designed to look like the building adjacent to the Christopher Columbus Center (creating an appearance of horizontal floors, not ramps).
McLaren's Role: 
The most challenging aspect of McLaren’s role involved coordinating a deep foundation system around existing concrete tie-backs that are used to support an existing bulkhead on the east side of the project. Since the existing tie-backs supported a bulkhead that was owned by Baltimore City, McLaren had to provide access at the grade level of the garage for construction equipment to be able to access and repair the tie-backs, if necessary. In addition to the existing tie-back system, the utilities had to be re-routed through the site to ensure that all required elements would fit.
