Louisville, KY


First And Main Parking Structure

Project Size: 650 stalls

Structural Engineer: Cary Kopczynski & Company, Bellevue, Washington

Concrete Contractor: Baker Concrete Construction, Monroe, Ohio

Contractor: Donley’s Inc., Cleveland, Ohio

To facilitate the revitalization of its downtown, the city of Louisville commissioned a design-build competition for a new six-story parking garage. CKC teamed with a Cleveland contractor and provided a design that met the owner’s rigorous requirements.

The structural frame consists of a post-tensioned concrete beam and slab system, with lateral loads resisted by beam-column frames. This provides an open garage with enhanced security.

To address the owner’s durability concerns, CKC specified a high performance, yet economical, concrete mix. The concrete cover over slab reinforcing was also increased. With these added measures, a minimum design life of 50 years was provided, satisfying the owner’s requirements.
