CWC has gained a reputation for intelligently waterproofing and sequencing repairs so as to eliminate drastic, or unnecessary, costs over the lifetime of a structure. CWC maintains total control of the quality and scheduling throughout restoration, easily handling large, self-performed demolition projects and all of the large-scale aspects associated with it. Parking garages have imminent needs over the course of time due to the exposure to weather, the stress on the structure from heavy use, and the expected wear from traffic which places a constant stress on the decks.
Our restoration and preservation team applies years of experience to help owners remain proactive against water and chemical damage over the lifetime of their garage facility. Such structures are routinely exposed to damaging weather and chemicals, such as petroleum derivatives, water, road salt, and acid rain. New, existing, and repaired structures require protection from these elements infiltrating the decks, which advance corrosion, cracks, and the possible presence and expansion of ice within the concrete bonds. Waterproofing is vital during any structural repair, as it successfully eliminates the need to repeat the same repair again, and prevents related future costs for the owner.
Over 20 years of assessing outdated or flawed industry practices during our restoration of older garages, CWC has gained significant insight. All of which is integrated throughout our management and workforce to improve each new design/build and specialty project. Our restoration philosophy is built upon being proactive, not reactive, so that we can stay ahead of maintenance and prevent costly repairs for the owner.
All restoration planning is personalized and comprehensive based on the structure’s needs and potential, allowing CWC to tackle any project-related challenge with cost effectiveness and industry best practices. At CWC, WE SOLVE PARKING™

We have worked with Carl Walker Construction, Inc. since 2003, and have used them in all three of our garages in downtown Pittsburgh. They have partnered well with our engineering team, and it has truly been a team effort.
We rely on their expertise in the construction area. In fact, when we’ve had to think about new ways to do things, Joe White has been a great help. The quality of their craftsmanship is very high, and I’m extremely satisfied with the work they’ve done. They don’t need a lot of supervision and they get the job done right.
I recommend them without hesitation.
Vice President, Construction and Engineering
I have enjoyed working with Carl Walker Construction for over 20 years on many successful projects involving concrete repair/rehabilitation, new parking garages/decks, plazas and waterproofing systems. The projects that I’ve worked on with Carl Walker Construction have ranged from simple concrete repair to complex rehabilitation involving unique post-tensioned and/or cathodic protection systems. Over the last 20+ years Carl Walker Construction has consistently shown me that they have the desired expertise, integrity and attitude to work together, in both a design-bid and design-build capacity, to successfully complete projects both efficiently and economically.

During the last six years Carl Walker has completed numerous projects for me. Their team consistently demonstrates superior planning and organization skills from the initial preconstruction meeting through to project completion. The work they perform is always professionally executed, staffed throughout with quality tradesmen and completed on schedule with minimal disruption to the daily operations at my facilities.
Joe White and his team are very hardworking and highly skilled. They excel in solving problems, finding resources, meeting deadlines and putting in the personal effort and time needed to guarantee the successful completion of any project large or small.
I highly recommend Carl Walker Construction.

I’m very impressed with the Carl Walker Construction, Inc. organization. Their leadership team will work with you closely to help you achieve your goals. They’re really committed to getting you the package that meets your needs. We recently worked with Dave Monroe on a potential project, and were extremely impressed. I would absolutely rely on them for technical assistance with a parking structure, and would recommend them to anyone considering construction of a parking garage. Their reputation is excellent.

On an annual basis, we have Carl Walker Construction, Inc. review our structure to make certain the surface membrane is still intact. We also rely on them for sidewalk and paver repairs. In 2005, a broken City of Pittsburgh water main flooded another one of our parking facilities. Carl Walker Construction, Inc. inspected the deck and resurfaced the damaged sections …another job well done.
Their field management is excellent, and the work they have done for us has extended the useful life of our parking facilities.
Hertz Gateway Center L.P.
Given CWC’s significant experience delivering unique design/build solutions, they were the obvious choice for this mixed-use facility and challenging project in Pittsburgh’s congested, central business district. Their team’s experience and attitude were instrumental in making the project a success. Since the 350 Oliver project, we’ve used CWC on another design/build parking garage, and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.
