The Berkman is a large multi-family apartment building with office space, retail space, town homes, and a 4-story parking garage. It is located off of 2nd Street in Rochester, Minnesota. The building structure consists of 15 stories of post tension concrete at the apartment tower and a 4-story post tension parking ramp, built on top of a story of below grade parking. The concrete foundations started in May of 2018 and the proposed topping off of the post tension concrete is scheduled for April 15th of 2019. Even after the post tension concrete structure is complete, our crews will still have another 16,000 sf on grade town home structure to complete. The concrete crews have worked diligently to keep this project on schedule with some complex PT slabs and difficult foundations, not to mention building most of the PT structure during the winter.
Concrete Totals: • 82,000 sf of slabs on grade •13,000 sf of topping slabs •580,000 sf of PT slabs •58,000 sf of poured walls •TOTAL CONCRETE 22,500 cubic yards placed
