Major improvements have been made to restore the Ernest E. Proulx Parking Garage on Dwight Street in Holyoke. The City hired Walker Restoration Consultants of Boston to conduct a condition assessment of both the Proulx Garage and the Suffolk St. Parking Deck. From that report an estimated $6 Million of necessary repairs were identified. The City Council approved a municipal bond to fund repairs in August, 2011.
Contracting Specialists, Inc. from Attleboro, MA were awarded the $1.38 Million restoration contract for the Proulx garage. Work consisted of concrete repairs to the precast floor and framing, replacement of all joint sealants, application of traffic bearing waterproofing membrane and floor sealer, replacement of stair tower doors, frames, and hardware, replacement of the power distribution and general and emergency lighting systems, new fire alarm system, replacement of the parking and revenue control systems, painting metal barrier guard railings, exterior trim, interior walls and traffic markings, cleaning and servicing of floor drain system, new signage and graphics.Share
