Interior Demolition, Concrete Cutting, and Shoring
The Atwater Garage is a parking structure below Detroit’s Cobo Center Plaza and Jefferson Service Drive. Due to significant deterioration, the second level concrete supported slab was condemned. Temporary shoring was installed to prevent catastrophic failure and the garage was closed. This project entailed removal of slab, and sawcutting and recovering the associated, bell-type column capitals flush with the existing columns carrying the roof. Detroit Dismantling’s design of a heavy-duty shoring frame that could be moved easily was critical to the success of the project.
