Corcoran Parking Garage Repair
The Corcoran garage is a 1960s concrete parking structure that was renovated to better serve Durham downtown arts district. A condition assessment revealed extensive concrete deterioration throughout, inadequate and confusing signage, water infiltration damage, and unsafe conditions due to lighting deficiencies. Structural restoration work included widespread concrete and brick masonry façade repairs and a new comprehensive waterproofing system that enhanced long-term durability. Parking operational improvements included uniform signage, accessibility upgrades, LED light fixtures, and systemized painting of the entire structure. Following the restoration, the Corcoran has been able to charge more than double their previous hourly parking rate.
