Kaiser Fair Oaks Shoring

Fairfax, VA

KEC was retained to conduct slab analysis for the concrete repairs and shoring design during the repairs at the parking garage in Kaiser Fair Oaks Medical Center, located in Fairfax, VA. The parking garage consists of two framing plans. The first framing plan is a slab and post-tensioned girders; while the second framing system consists of a steel frame with a composite metal deck. Repairs on both framing plans were needed. The objectives in this project were to calculate the jacking force required to re-establish the design prestress force into the required post-tensioning cables; and to provide shoring design for the floor system during jacking and repairing to support both slab systems. The shoring design and shoring layout were prepared accordingly.
