Notable Projects Completed
Rainbow Arch Bridge

Rainbow ArchThe Rainbow Arch Bridge, a national historical landmark built in 1922 from a James Marsh design, spans 1100 feet over the South Platte River in Eastern Colorado. Given the bridges’ age, usage, and the major floods it has withstood, restoration was long overdue. The 45-day project consisted of hanger replacement and repair, concrete repair, restoration, and replacement; epoxy injection; expansion joint rehabilitation; removal and replacement of the asphalt mat, structural coating; and electrical writing with new light posts and luminaries fashioned after the original gas lamps. Federal, state, and local governments worked jointly to coordinate the restoration of this valued landmark.

Building 67 Plaza Deck Replacement

Building 67 Plaza Deck ReplacementBlazer was contacted by the General Services Administration to remove 25,000 square feet of the original plaza deck system, down to the structural slab; install new area drains and associated piping; lay out and pour nineteen new sections of sloped-to-drains leveling course with 4000 psi concrete along with 100 cubic feet of polymer-modified patching; installation of new 215 mil hot-applied, fabric-reinforced waterproofing membrane with º inch protection board; and lay out and install over 5000′ 2’x2′ precast paver systems on pedestals for new wear surface. The day-to-day operations of the building could not be disrupted by construction activities, including the truck docks and receiving areas. Therefore, all demolition and hauling activities were scheduled and carried out at night and on selected weekends.

Murrah Plaza

Murrah PlazaBlazer’s structural alterations and repairs at the Alfred P. Murrah Plaza and Garage, which were severely damaged by the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, will undoubtedly be viewed as one of the most significant restoration projects in the country. The restored plaza will become an integral component of the Oklahoma City National Memorial. Repairs of the existing concrete structures utilizing innovative carbon fiber reinforced polymer fabric as well as conventional externally-placed steel reinforcing methods will give new life and vitality to this landmark.

LDS Physicians Office

LDS Physicians OfficeThe LDS Physicians Office Building project in Salt Lake City, Utah, consisted of restoration and seismic retrofit of two parking structures. In addition to using every applicable restoration technique, Blazer utilized composite fiber reinforcing polymers (CFRP’s) to seismically retrofit 122 columns. Both robotics and wet lay-up methods were used for the installation process.
