I'm not sure about a text but I have designed several parking decks in South Florida. One of the best regional methods of construction for this type of construction would be with a system developed by "CastCrete". It consists of prestressed concrete joists and girders (only the positive moment steel and shear stirrups are imbedded in the lower portion of the beam leaving 75% exposed). In addition, the joists have the top 3-4" of shear stirrups exposed. The joists have small holes in the side and are typically spaced at 4'-4" o/c (4" wide joists). This allows for pins to be inserted and a full sheet of plywood to be used as a slab form. The girders are supported on scaffolding, the joist ends are supported on the girders. The engineers job is to call at the horizontal shear reinforcement at the end of the joists, slab reinforcement, and the negative moment reinforcement. This is installed at the job site. Standard masonry shearwalls and columns can also be used for support. I recommend contacting the company directly. They will be happy to supply you with span tables and literature on how to design these type of structures. I have designed 5 story university buildings for Florida State which contained 24" floor steps in the lecture halls. The system is actually more versatile than standard concrete construction and ends up with the same benefits of rigidity required for hurricane protection. -----Original Message----- From: PEC - Lake City [mailto:pec(--nospam--at)isgroup.net] Sent: Tuesday, September 28, 1999 11:38 AM To: StrucTX; Seaint Subject: Parking Garage We may have the opportunity to design a 3-story concrete parking garage of one of our clients. I have not been involved in the design of one before and look forward to the learning opportunity. Whether we would do the complete layout and design or only the structural design has not been determined. Can anyone recommend a good text that deals with parking garage designs, especially the connection details? Also, is there a rule of thumb that is generally used for the estimated construction cost and the design fee? The project is located in Florida David Finley, P.E.
