To improve its infrastructure, the Amtrak 30th Street Station underwent renovations to the West Plaza & Parking Deck and North Platform. Demolition to certain areas was conducted prior to the start of renovations to the basement, parking and street levels. Our basic sequence in replacing the parking deck was protecting the utilities, shoring the columns/walls, removing the steel, preparing beam and column connections, erecting new structural steel/deck/concrete, painting, waterproofing, completing the plumbing/electric work and finally removing the protection from existing utilities. Being a logistically complicated renovation located in an active train station, the project was phased to ensure a safe construction zone and minimal interference with station functions.
