Challenge
Winnipeg’s environmental conditions posed a significant design challenge. Long, cold winters reduced favourable construction period durations, while expansive soils required special design considerations for foundations and slabs-on-grade elements.
Solution
An extensive cost-benefit analysis was performed to study various durability and constructability options. The analysis included several waterproofing systems, corrosion inhibiters, and sealers. Structural system options included cast-in-place topped precast double tees, pre-topped precast double tees, cast-in-place reinforced concrete, and cast-in-place post-tensioned alternatives. The selected design utilized driven precast pile foundations and precast parkade superstructure elements in order to maximize off-site fabrication and economically facilitate winter construction.
