Abstract

Construction of the Union Station Parking Garage was observed through the documentation and analysis of the project management team. Methods to reduce the construction cost were performed by evaluating the impacts of a union-only project labor agreement, and by conducting a cost estimate that analyzes and compares the use of a union workforce opposed to a nonunion workforce. A proposed alternative layout and design was developed using a cast-in-place reinforced concrete structure opposed to the original precast concrete.
