Duke University Biddle Plaza

Durham, NC

The Biddle Plaza renovation involved demolishing and replacing a 26,000 SF concrete plaza paver system, including waterproofing, precast concrete planters, and steps. A new poured-in-place concrete paving system was designed and installed over a brand new waterproofing system. The new paving was placed in a thicker section to minimize the curling. Furthermore, it was substantially reinforced at the perimeter to prevent the creep that had contributed to the failure of the original system.
