Willard Ice Parking Garage

The Willard Ice Parking Garage in Springfield, Illinois, underwent a $2.5 million concrete restoration using Western Specialty Contractors expertise. The post-tension concrete repair, notoriously difficult, required the assistance of both the St. Louis, Missouri and Springfield branches to complete. And because the garage would have to be closed during this work, time was of the essence.

This restoration project required 130 tension splice repairs, 60 new post-tension anchors and 180,000 square feet of re-shoring. Crews used hydro demolition to expose and remove the delaminated areas and replace significant portions of the deck. On days when concrete was poured or replaced, 40-50 Western employees from two different offices converged to meet this project’s manpower needs. Workers re-stressed and pressurized tension anchors upon pouring the concrete to ensure the garage’s safety and stability.

Through the collaborative efforts of two offices, Western completed this project on time and budget.
