Western Specialty Contractors was contacted by Crown West Realty to renovate an existing plaza deck at 501 South Cherry Street. The plaza was in need of structural repair as well as increasing its aesthetic features.
The entire existing topping was removed and repairs were made to the structural concrete surface by using epoxy injection to weld the structural concrete members below the plaza deck. After the structural pieces supporting the plaza deck were repaired, a hot-applied waterproofing membrane was installed. The membrane was applied to specifications to support and protect areas of the deck that would include vegetation.
A floating paver system was installed on the deck to allow water to pass between pavers to the membrane and migrate to the drains in the deck. Landscaping was installed allowing the building tenants to enjoy a vastly improved plaza area while increasing the attractiveness of the building overall.
