Key CSI Projects Involving Parking Decks, Garages

MA Turnpike and Sheraton Newton Hotel

Owner:       J. F. White Properties LLC

Location:   300 Washington St. Newton, MA

Engineer/Architect:  D. M. Berg Consultants, PC

As a result of the State's strict protocol for inspection of bridges and the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority's "Tunnel Inspection and Testing Protocol for Roadways Covered by Air Rights Developments", J. F. White Properties was proactive in addressing the structure below the Sheraton Newton Hotel at Gateway Center. This structure bridges the Massachusetts Turn Pike and west bound on Ramp.

J. F. White Properties LCC awarded the contract to Contracting Specialists Inc. to perform extensive structural concrete repairs at the abutment walls, piers, pre-cast sections and T-beams. Steel saddles were added at T-beam sections, steel angles and channels were added for supplemental support as required by structural engineer D.M. Berg. After all repairs were completed, all surfaces were cleaned and an acrylic, protective, anti-carbonation coating was applied to the exposed wall and overhead concrete surfaces bridging the Massachusetts Turnpike.

As part of the comprehensive maintenance program a traffic coating was applied to the exposed top surfaces of the slabs which comprise the drive lanes and parking stalls at the hotel perimeter.

The logistics associated with this work was extremely challenging with lane shut downs required to be scheduled in advance and all work having to be performed during night time hours.
