Typically after the Condition Survey (Phase 1) and Repair Design (Phase 2) are completed the final phase can begin. This phase consists of Construction Engineering and Inspections. ESE can provide engineering … More>>
Corrosion is broadly defined as the degradation of material properties due to the effects of the environment. Corrosion in the coastal environment is an especially insidious and destructive force that cannot remain unchecked for very long. Please see the image/infographic for an explanation of corrosion of a concrete structure.
The coastal regions of Florida represent the most corrosive environment in the continental United States. Structures can be adversely affected within only a few years of construction. Success in combating corrosion demands specialists that understand how structures and construction materials are affected by corrosion, as well as the corrosive mechanisms at work in the aggressive coastal environment and especially the effective means of combatting it.
