HSBC Parking Ramp

HSBC Parking Ramp

Buffalo, NY

Condition Survey & Repairs

DiDonato Associates conducted a field condition survey of the structural pre-cast concrete elements for scaling, cracking, spalling and other deterioration that affects both the aesthetics and structural capacity of the HSBC Parking Ramp. Condition survey of ancillary items relative to the pre-cast concrete elements included field welded connections (where accessible), control and expansion joints, deck drains and related piping.  We also performed a ground-based visual inspection of the façade to identify areas for future study as necessary.  Data was collected and was superimposed on record drawings wherever possible. 

After the survey, DiDonato provided a technical narrative describing the deterioration found, potential causes and recommended remediation methods.  Types and amounts of deterioration were quantified and an estimate of repair costs generated.  A prioritized list of recommended repairs was provided for use in programming future work.

Phases 1 and 2 of the repairs included:

Phase 3 - Included miscellaneous concrete repairs, modifications of existing expansion joints and installation of pedestrian traffic coating in two stair towers.
