Collaborative Design Group performs Condition Survey studies and prepares restoration designs for many parking ramps every year. Our process includes observing the structure to note movements, cracking, deterioration, and water seepage. Both destructive and non-destructive testing is performed when needed.
Prior to recommending repairs, our engineers make sure that we understand the cause of the problems and not just address the obvious symptoms. Multi-year phasing plans are typically developed as the repairs can sometimes be more costly than can be afforded by the owner in one year. All of the items needing repair are identified and prioritized before a cost estimate is performed. With all of these facts in hand, the owner can make an informed decision on how best to repair the ramp in order to protect their investment.
