Dallas Arboretum Parking Garage and Tunnel

Dallas, Texas

Project Type: Plastering, Drywall, EIFS

General Contractor: Rogers-O'Brien Construction

Originally, the tunnel’s design called for the walls and ceiling to be painted concrete, however the owner was concerned with the finished surface, so they brought in BakerTriangle. Architect Good, Fulton and Farrell designed a plastering system with cold rolled channel iron bent to conform to the tunnel’s radius, with a metal lath and stucco base. The owner approved an upgrade of Parex Krak-Shield for the finished walls and ceiling in order to avoid future repairs on a sub grade location below a busy Dallas street. BakerTriangle also performed the installation of drywall and metal framing for Rogers-O’Brien Construction.
