Palermo Parking Garage
Oakville, Ontario

Armtec Brampton Precast Concrete Solutions supplied the precast concrete elements for an above grade two level parking structure with 300 parking stalls. The structure included three total precast stair towers purposefully placed to provide convenient exits for patrons of the adjacent medical office building.

By incorporating additional structural capacity early in the design phase, Armtec Brampton’s in-house engineering team assisted the consultants in maximizing the efficiency of the precast design to allow for a future 3rd level.

Armtec’s Brampton Precast parking structures feature Clearspan construction. To provide greater safety and convenience for both cars and patrons, Clearspan construction features columns located at the ends of parking stalls, eliminating intrusive obstructions and providing open sightlines.

The inclement weather of the winter season did not interfere with the owner’s deadline for completion. Manufacturing of the precast concrete garage elements off-site in Armtec-Brampton Precast’s enclosed plant during the site preparation saved time while ensuring a high quality product.

With limited access, the majority of the precast erection was confined to within the garage footprint, minimizing any onsite disruptions.

To compliment the adjacent Medical office building, the exterior facade features a simulated brick finish, which was achieved through the use of brick textured formliners and multi-coloured staining.

The following products were used for the Palermo Parking Garage: 

81 – 12’ TT’s (50,196 sq.ft.)
18 – Beams  (549 L.FT)
