Bridge Street Market
State: Michigan City: Grand Rapids
Completed: 2018 Contractor: Rockford Construction
The Bridge Street Market is a grocery store in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. A parking structure provided maximum space to allow fluent traffic in busy locations. The architectural features required on this project make precast concrete essential. The high-quality concrete used provided the customer with a durable, high quality product that will last for many years. With precast concrete, all the product was made at our production facility and shipped to the site daily to be erected into place.
The design flexibility of precast allowed the design team to make a late addition of precast framing for solar panels on the roof. Precast not only eliminated additional trades, but it allowed the solar frame to be installed concurrently with the parking structure. This allowed the solar panels to be installed sooner. The Sand blasted precast with the custom reveals and recesses in exterior give the parking deck a unique look that the Architect wanted. The solar panel canopy is environmentally friendly and gives shade to vehicles parked on the roof level. Precast made all of this possible!
“Kerkstra was easy to work with. Their knowledge on schedule and sequencing of the parking structure allowed us to take the appropriate time to facilitate logistics. Once construction started on the precast parking deck, I was impressed with how quickly things moved along!”
