INDUSTRIAL DETAILING, INC., PAXTON & VIERLING STEEL TEAM UP ON NEBRASKA MEDICINE PARKING STRUCTURE
Two longtime SDS/2 customers — St. Louis, Missouri-based Industrial Detailing, Inc. and Paxton & Vierling Steel Company of Carter Lake, Iowa — were recently part of the team responsible for construction of a new parking facility for Nebraska Medicine.
With its rapidly expanding campus, Omaha-based Nebraska Medicine needed to create additional on-site parking to meet expanding demands. The new eight-story garage — comprised of approximately 800 tons of structural steel — includes 730 spots in its double helix ramp system.
The garage’s superstructure uses wide-flange steel columns and beams; a two-part coating system was used on all steel framing members. As profiled in Modern Steel Construction, the detailing of the slab and beam interaction was critical to minimizing the potential for cracking caused by slab restraints with a volume-changing post-tensioned deck.
The garage was completed in 2015.
