|Molin Concrete worked closely with the architect and general contractor to design and build the Crosby Hotel Parking Ramp, a three-level, 124-stall parking ramp. The ramp was built to replace 35 city parking spaces that would be lost due to the planned construction of the adjacent Crosby Hotel project. Of the parking area’s three levels, the first two are accessible from Mulberry Street, with the top level being accessible from Second Street.
The hotel and parking ramp are in the historic downtown Stillwater, Minnesota area, so careful consideration was required to insure the newly constructed parking ramp and the hotel would match existing historic buildings. After submitting architectural precast concrete samples, mockup panels
and receiving architectural approval to use a tumbled brick in colors replicating a historic aesthetic, Molin Concrete produced and installed the architectural precast wall and spandrel panels.
By designing with precast concrete columns, prestressed concrete long-span beams, and a combination of hollow core plank and solid slab decks, this facility achieves an open bay that allows traffic to freely maneuver in and out of parking spaces.
In total, Molin Concrete Products Company manufactured and installed 790 square feet of prestressed hollow core plank, 18,250 square feet of prestressed solid slabs, 388 lineal feet of prestressed beams, 483 lineal feet of precast concrete columns, and 13,107 square feet of architectural precast concrete wall panels.
