Charlotte Douglas International Airport Parking Decks Galvanized Steel Study

Charlotte Douglas International Airport Parking Decks Galvanized Steel Study

08.25.15


The American Galvanizers Association (AGA) has announced two new additions to its Galvanized Steel Studies (GSS) initiative. In June, the AGA visited two sites in North Carolina, the Charlotte Douglas Airport Parking Decks and the Metrolina Greenhouses.  Each Galvanized Steel Study is a video featuring interviews with architects, engineers, owners, or others directly involved with a galvanized steel project speaking about how the hot-dip galvanizing has performed over the lifetime of the project.  As of July 2015, six videos have been completed.

The latest additions were filmed in North Carolina where the projects are located in a hot, humid, and corrosive environment. The Charlotte Douglas International Airport Parking Decks project was first galvanized in 2003 and opened for business in 2004. Since the initial deck in 2004, the design team has built four additional parking structures utilizing hot-dip galvanized steel. Brian Bresg of LS3P Associates Ltd. shares why galvanizing was chosen and why they will continue to galvanize future projects.
