Event Name:Luncheon: Preserving Your Garage to Avoid Disruptions and Maintain Operations
Event Type(s):Luncheon
Description:THIS PROGRAM WILL BE OFFERED IN PERSON ONLY.  DUE TO AUSTIN STAGE 5 COVID - WE WILL REQUIRE MASKS UNLESS SEATED AT TABLE.  THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.

When was the last time you looked at the parking structure below or adjacent to your building? Unlike conventional buildings, parking structures are often unconditioned spaces that are exposed to the elements. This more aggressive exposure results in a higher occurrence of distress in structural elements and the need for more regularly scheduled structural maintenance to ensure the safety of and continued operations of the parking structure. Concrete spalling, corrosion of metals, faded striping, and deteriorated sealants are just some of the many afflictions suffered by parking garages. This presentation will detail the steps that should be taken to maintain parking structures including what to look for when inspecting your garage, inspection intervals, common types of distress observed in parking structures, repair strategies, allocating funding for annual repairs, and when you need to bring in a professional engineer to address observed problems.
