WDP performed condition assessments in both 2017 and 2018 of the 4-level, 250,000 sq. ft. parking garage located at the West Virginia State Capitol Complex in Charleston. The condition assessments included visual inspection, sounding of concrete surfaces, and material sampling and testing in order to identify and document deterioration, determine the cause of deterioration, and develop a repair program and associated cost estimates.
Following the 2018 condition assessment, WDP provided repair design services based on the recommendations described in the assessment report and discussions with the Owner. Complete bid documents were developed including repair drawings and project specifications. The drawings also provided a suggested phasing plan, allowing for continued use of the garage during the performance of repairs.
WDP provided bidding phase services and construction support services in the form of submittal and RFI reviews, bi-weekly site visits, review of contractor pay applications, and closeout during construction between April and December of 2019. In July of 2020, WDP evaluated and assessed the performance of the 2019 repairs which completed this term contract.
