Throop Company participated in repair a parking structure similar to this one after the 1994 Northridge earthquake using Rapid Set Cement in Burbank, CaliforniaThe George L. Throop Company was contacted by the Bob Hope Burbank Airport engineer to help save a multi-level parking garage damaged by the 1994 Northridge earthquake. After analyzing the problem, the solution decided upon was to wrap the numerous damaged columns with custom fabricated steel columns welded in place. Rapid Set concrete was then used to fill the void between the column and the steel jacket that had just been welded. The parking garage was returned to service in record time in just a few days after the earthquake.
