River City Plaza

The plaza was constructed in the late 70’s and was in great need of restoration. The project consisted of:

  • The removal of existing topping slab and hot applied waterproofing membrane (18,000 SF.)
  • Removal of a 2,000 SF precast planter (soil removal and precast planter walls.)
  • Installation of new hot applied waterproofing system and five inch topping slab (18,000 SF.)
  • New 1,200 SF precast planter with extensive landscaping design.
  • New overhead can lights, custom made wall sconces, and decorative lighted bollards.
  • New barrier cable system.
  • Installation of new dual drains throughout the new plaza.

Painting of all existing plaza columns and EIFS. Challenges:

  • Entire plaza is located over commercial space, including a 24-hour gym.
  • The number one priority during demo was keeping all occupied spaces leak free.
  • The entire plaza was tented to keep the wet weather out.
  • The entire topping slab concrete was pumped in place because of plaza access restrictions.
  • All of the newly installed hot applied waterproofing was water tested by using the Electronic Field Vector Mapping (EFVM) to test to ensure a watertight system.
