Aetna Sigourney Street Parking Garage

New Precast Parking Structure Matches Historic Setting Flawlessly

Aetna Sigourney Street Parking Garage

The Aetna Sigourney Street Parking structure located in Hartford, Connecticut, looks perfectly natural next to the historic Aetna Headquarters built in 1930. Two styles of brick on the exterior wall panels and the ability to match the color of the historic existing brick illustrates the architectural flexibility of precast concrete. Increased parking space and speed of construction add to the testament of the versatility of precast concrete.

Horse Bridge, Randolph, MA

Precast Concrete Segmental Bridge Replaces 56 Year Old Bridge in Randolph, MA

Horse Bridge

The new Massachusetts DCR Access Road over Route 24 replaces a 56-year old deteriorated four span steel “Horse Bridge” used by horses and hikers. The new 2-span precast concrete Matchcast channel beam bridge is 248 feet long and just under 30 feet wide. The channel design added 2 feet 6 inches of clearance for Route 24 without changing the approach grade. Added clearance along with fewer piers makes driving Route 24 much safer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Which quality control manual should be specified in the specifications for my project?

A. PCI Certification provides a system of categories. This system ensures that producers are qualified to produce the products that you are specifying. Precast concrete plants can be certified in as many as four product groups:
Group A—Architectural Products;
Group B and BA—Bridge Products;
Group C and CA—Commercial (Structural) Products; and
Group G—Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) Products

For structural precast prestressed products in Group C, Quality Control for Plants and Production of Structural Precast Concrete Products MNL-116 will govern. 

For architectural precast concrete products in Group A, Quality Control for Plants and Production of Architectural Precast Concrete Product MNL-117 will govern.
