The One Theater Square Parking Garage provides parking for the adjacent luxury apartment building. It consists of four elevated levels and contains 285 parking spots. It is scheduled to open in the summer of 2018. We provided the structural precast on the project and engineered and detailed the architectural precast, which was manufactured by Architectural Precast Innovations, Inc. This project stands out because of its intricate brick work and challenging piece geometry.
The detailing of the brick was a challenge, which was made much easier using Tekla Structure's component system for creating and updating repetitive patterns. The precast interfaced with steel in many locations and coordinating connections and embed locations was a challenge. Reinforcing was located to accommodate fasteners for the post-installed window units.
The steel framing model, which was also detailed with Tekla Structures, was imported as a reference for locating embeds in the precast. IFC files were provided to the architect to communicate RFI's in some instances. Drawing files showing the track system and fastener locations for the post-installed window units were imported as references to prevent clashes with reinforcing.
