Oakbrook Center — Theater Expansion

TGRWA provided the structural design, working drawings, and construction phase services for this new 4-story, 260,000 square foot mixed-use, movie theater and parking garage structure. The building includes a 1,429-seat, 12-screen movie theater with a new link to the existing shopping concourse. The new parking structure will accommodate 503 cars. The steel-framed theater structure is supported by a long span, steel-framed podium level that is in turn supported by the all precast concrete parking structure. The foundations are shallow spread footings with a rammed aggregate pier ground improvement system.
