The team at CMR has vast experience in assessing parking structure damage and creating a high-quality repair and restoration plan built to last.

Parking Structure Project Profile

In 2012 the City of Milwaukee enlisted CMR to repair a heavily trafficked downtown parking structure. The parking facility was in poor structural condition after a number of previous repair and waterproofing attempts. Wisconsin weather and years of wear had led to significant corrosion damage to the reinforcing steel, causing the concrete to spall and crack. After a thorough assessment of the various damages, cracks and repair issues, CMR worked with the City of Milwaukee to develop a comprehensive concrete repair and restoration solution to address their unique needs. This included a modified traffic bearing system that was developed specifically for this project.

Parking Structure Repair Technologies

SHOT BLASTINGCMR often recommends waterproofing or speciality coatings as part of restoration solutions for parking structures. In order to better prepare the site in a uniform and efficient manner, CMR uses walk-behind and self-propelled Shot Blasting technology.
ROBOTIC CHIPPING HAMMER Preparing a parking structure for repairs frequently requires the dangerous work of overhead concrete chipping. For increased safety and consistency, as well as efficiency, CMR utilizes the latest technologies including robotic chipping hammers.
VAPOR BLASTING CMR employs eco-friendly vapor blasting equipment to safely and effectively prepare surfaces and remove coatings at parking structure work sites. The vapor blast technology suppresses up to 97% of airborne particles.
HEPA VACUUMES & FILTERS Concrete restoration of a parking structure can lead to waste and airborne particles that are the harmful to the environment and workers. Although not required, CMR uses HEPA vacuums and filters to maintain a clean and safe work site.
