ICRI RECOGNIZES Outstanding Repair Projects
The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) Recently Announced its 2011 Project Awards. The Organization honored eight projects with Awards of Excellence, 13 projects with Awards of Merit, and one Project of the Year.
2011 Project of the Year
Royal Floridian Resort, Ormond Beach, FL
The Royal Floridian Resort, originally built in 1973, received several alterations over the years, but progressive deterioration, caused by the harsh saltwater environment was never addressed. Testing revealed severe structural steel corrosion, high chloride content, spall, cracked and disbanded stucco, and water intrusion. As a result, balconies and walkways were completely removed and replaced with new concrete containing a corrosion-inhibiting admixture, while other areas were repaired with structural repair mortars. The resort also received an architectural aesthetic makeover new pool deck pavers and new concrete swimming pools.
