During a regular facility condition assessment of the Randal Library, UNCW discoved severe corrosion of structural members supporting the library entrance. Atlas Engineering was brought in to assess the severity of the damage and to design the structural repairs. During the assessment, Atlas discovered that a lack of waterproofing for the structure’s perimeter was the root cause of the corrosion. Atlas designed structural and waterproofing repairs to prevent future corrosion.
