    Abstract

    Woodhull Hospital is a multistory structure with vehicle parking on an intermediate level. The original paving system failed and was replaced with insulated precast concrete pavers.

    The waterproofing/paving assembly design constraints included: allowable dead load, equivalent thermal resistance, overall depth, low headroom, limited access for removal of debris and movement of materials, and restriction of equipment and vehicle loads. Numerous rail posts were further complications.

    The system selected consisted of 105 by 210 by 9.37 cm (3 ft, 6 in. by 7 ft, 0 in. by 3 3/4 in.) precast concrete pavers with insulation recessed on the underside. Slabs were supported on continuous rubber strips and installed over an ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) loose-laid sheet membrane.

    The new system has been in place since 1984 and is problem free to date. This paper discusses the problems and how they were solved, the elements of the design, and the installation method.
