The use of structural steel rather than poured in place concrete is highly efficient for both new construction and restoration. In the case of Bedrock’s restoration of the classic Detroit Free Press building in downtown Detroit, the AUTOParkit system is being used to reinforce the center structure.
The primary structure of the AUTOParkit system is fabricated off-site and assembled on-site, lowering the cost and shortening the construction schedule. In the case of skyscrapers, our system is built right into the building structure without the need for concrete slabs. In other cases, the building uses the AUTOParkit system as the base for the entire structure.
The stressed steel design provides AUTOParkit modularity in design with the adaptability necessary to fit a variety of project needs. Because the structure is also the framework for the AUTOParkit systems can be above ground, below ground, split level, or in combination. The use of 100 percent recycled steel helps the environment and meets green building requirements.
