The Breakers Condominiums
A significant challenge with placing the anodes on the beach façade was finding the reinforcing steel as well as the fact that not all block tiers had reinforcing steel. Due to the distance between vertical rebar as well as tiers with no rebar, it was necessary to use copper wire to tie rebar together and maintain continuity.
Finally, an elastic, crack-bridging, anti-carbonation coating in a two-color scheme was applied to protect the entire building from further chloride and carbonation ingress.
