Parking Deck

385 Prospect Avenue

Hackensack, New Jersey

When Hartz Mountain Industries determined their medical office building needed more parking, they designed a surface deck over an existing parking structure. Our firm was engaged to perform an inspection and evaluation of the existing structure to determine how the lot coud be safely built on what was effectively a roof garden. Our structural team performed invasive testing of the slab to establish its carrying capacity, then designed a lightweight concrete fill material to create a surface that would allow for the passenger vehicle loading patterns. We provided on-site personnel to inspect the installation to allow for a certification of the completed structure. Work was completed in June, 2011.
