  • EAR TO THE GROUND
    Service Life Engineering has become its own powerful field of study with immense impact on the future.
  • THAT’S A FACT
    Concrete is a light color, which reflects from 33 to 50 per cent more light than asphalt, and can even lower the average town temperature by six degrees.

Shipyard Village Condos

Field Assessment/Repair Recommendations-Airborne Marine

This project was a corrosion assessment of two five-story ocean-front condominium buildings built in the mid 1980's. The structural system consisted of reinforced concrete and masonry infill with precast prestressed hollow-core plank floors and a cast-in place concrete topping.

TCG conducted a visual assessment, concrete sampling and testing for airborne chloride contamination, provided recommendations for corrosion mitigation repairs to balconies and walkways, and identified a few construction defects that were brought to the attention of the structural engineer and property management firm. TCG later provided a cathodic protection design to complement the structural engineer's strengthening designs.
