Galt House Parking GarageGeolocation: 38.2527, -85.7585

The Galt House Parking Garage is a new eight-story post tension cast-in-place parking garage approximately 234,500-square-foot in size. The new parking garage was supported on 18" diameter 125-ton capacity auger-cast piles. A steel connector bridge was also constructed over 3rd Street connecting to the new University of Louisville Yum Center basketball arena. Services provided by Terracon included value engineering to shorten the original pile design prepared by others. This was confirmed by field load testing prior to installation of more than 500 auger cast piles. Other Special Inspections services included field monitoring and testing of post-tension cables for the parking garage.
