Northtown Mall Flyover
Northtown Mall is one of the largest and most successful shopping centers in the Inland Northwest. The Flyover allows shoppers to travel directly from Wellesley Avenue into the third level of the parking structure, avoiding the street level vehicle and pedestrian congestion.
CKC provided all structural design of the flyover using both AASHTO and ACI criteria. Cast-in-place concrete was used for the foundations, columns, and suspended deck, with precast exterior cladding attached to the slab edge.
For durability, CKC specified a high performance concrete mix with a very low w/c ratio, corrosion inhibiting admixtures and additional clear cover to the reinforcing bar.
The Northtown Mall Flyover is a handsome addition to the shopping center and is an outstanding example of successful teamwork and collaboration between CKC, the architect, and general contractor.
