Stress-Con Involvement

Firekeepers Casino recently completed a five story precast concrete
parking structure with 2,078 spaces. The garage is attached to the
casino for easy access.
The 653,780 square foot parking garage was constructed
with 1,450 pieces of precast prestressed products using
pre-topped double tees floor systems, columns, beams,
shearwalls, load bearing stair walls and exterior
medium sandblast pocket spandrels & grade walls.
The precast concrete panels comprised
17,600 cubic yards of concrete. The project
was designed based on a single speed ramp
per level to allow patrons to have
immediate access to each parking level
including 4 stair towers and
2 elevator towers.

“We selected precast for the Firekeepers
Casino Parking Deck because of the tight
schedule and winter construction. The
ability to erect through the winter months
allowed the project to be completed on
schedule. Precast also resulted in an
initial lower cost.”
