Preserving the View
Dockside Condominiums is located in Charleston, South Carolina right on the Charleston Harbor. Over the years, salt (chlorides) carried through the air progressively deposited on the reinforced concrete surfaces at Dockside — a common occurrence in marine environments. Eventually, this resulted in corrosion of the reinforcing steel. The ownership and management at Dockside wanted a clear understanding of the root cause and extent of the problem to develop and implement a viable long-term solution. A condition assessment plan was developed in order to assess, quantify, and gain a full understanding of the damage to begin building a solution.
