Ocean Sands North is located in Indialantic, FL.
Due to the harsh coastal environment and previous improper repairs, the balconies were severely damaged beyond economical repair.
Falling edge debris caused pool closure prior to restoration.
After hiring ESE for a condition survey, repair design and bidding process, the condo elected to replace all of the balconies in lieu of repair based on ESE’s recommendation. The first stack of balconies were all removed from the top down and replaced from the bottom up. Demolition of the next stack was started midway through the first stack replacement. One at a time, the second set of balconies were removed and replaced from the bottom up with a modern corrosion resistant concrete mix design. This allowed the local restoration contractor to work on multiple stacks while still maintaining the structural integrity of the building.
By totally replacing all the balconies, the condominium will not have to perform any major concrete restoration processes for approximately 40 years. This will greatly save them money in the long run.
