Council Bluffs, IA

Owner: City of Council Bluffs, IA

Structural Engineer: SSE

Architect: Mark Wozniak & Associates

Additional Project Information

Initially condemned and recommended to be demolished by the consultant to the city, the Fourth Street Parking Garage was successfully restored only due to SSE expertise in the restoration or deteriorated concrete structures.

The Parking Garage was originally constructed of cast in place concrete on the lower levels, precast prestressed concrete on the second level, and post tensioned concrete on the third level.  The second and third levels were originally supported by a structural steel rigid frame.

The repairs by SSE were optimized to provide the maximum economies to the repairs, and to guarantee twenty plus years of additional service for the initially condemned structure.
