Mayor Robert Donchez, Senator Lisa Boscola and other dignitaries gather Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 for the dedication of a 626-spot garage in south Bethlehem. The garage at New and Third streets has been billed as jumpstarting redevelopment in that section of the South Side Business District. The $17.4 million is connected to a six-story office building under construction next to it. That office building will be home to offices for St. Luke’s University Health Network and Lehigh University. There will also be first-floor commercial space. Motorists can sign up for monthly parking passes for the garage. It costs $65 a spot. The parking authority leases 180 spots to the developer for his tenants.

As a High Concrete client, you get the benefit of precast concrete featuring our innovative CarbonCast® reinforcement technology. Our CarbonCast architectural panels and double tees are further reinforced with C-GRID® technology to provide even greater support for your precast structure. C-GRID carbon fiber reinforcing is the "enabling technology" that allows CarbonCast to be thinner, lighter, more durable and less costly than conventional precast. Non-corrosive and with low thermal conductivity, C-GRID has a tensile strength over four times higher than steel reinforcing. C-GRID is an epoxy-coated composite grid made with cross-laid and superimposed carbon fiber. C-GRID Carbon Fiber is a registered trademark of Chomarat NA.

C-GRID Represents a Major Advancement in Carbon Fiber Technology
In the past, using carbon fiber technology was restricted to processes in which high strength and lower weight were necessary. Once limited to the manufacturing of sports equipment and aerospace products, the development of industrial-grade products such as C-GRID has helped carbon fiber reinforcement achieve widespread implementation in new construction and various manufacturing processes across numerous industries.
While the C-GRID carbon fiber reinforcing product is a bit more expensive than tradition reinforcement products such as steel, it does offer other important cost-saving benefits. Specifically, by allowing for upgrades in the precast design used in the manufacturing of CarbonCast components, C-GRID carbon fiber reinforcement can actually make the overall cost of CarbonCast equal to or even lower than that of traditional precast.
Other valuable C-GRID benefits include:
