South Shore Parking Garages Repairs - Braintree and Quincy Adams
The South Shore Parking Garages Repairs project addresses the present needs of the Braintree Garage and Quincy Adams Garages to extend the operable service life of each facility and improve safety. This project includes structural concrete repairs and repairs of parking deck membranes; replacement of damaged expansion joints; drainage system replacement; upgrades to fire alarm, cctv, electrical, and power systems; full replacement of the lighting and electrical system at Quincy Adams Garage. Also included are upgrades to comply with accessibility requirements, restoration of garage employee office areas and the North Quincy Station bathrooms. Accessibility upgrades include providing more accessible spaces at each garage level near the elevators; improved signage; better circulation for accessibility vehicles, wheel chair access and pedestrian movement; and upgrades to the elevators.
This project presently has three construction contracts. The first two contracts are early action contracts and focus on immediate safety issues.
- Contract One was completed on June 30, 2015 and provided temporary upgrade to the lighting at the Quincy Adams Parking Garage.
- Contract Two is on-going and began in May 2015. Work under this contract provides repair of deteriorated garage- areas that need immediate attention to keep the garage safe and maintain operations. Work under this contract is planned to be completed in April 2015.
- Contract Three is planned to be the final contract. This construction contract will repair all remaining deteriorated garage components to bring the garages to a state-of-good-repair and extend the service life of the facilities approximately 40 more years. These improvements will open parking spaces that are presently closed for safety, thus improving operations and producing more daily revenue. Design is ongoing for this final construction phase. The third contract construction project is expected to begin in early 2017 and end in November/December 2019.
