GSE was contracted to provide structural remediation for Mustique Condominium after it was discovered that the building lacked adequate steel reinforcement to meet the strength requirements of the Building Code. GSE designed a remediation using carbon fiber reinforced polymer strips(CFRP). The remediation was completed by C-Sharpe while the popular condo remained in operation. The work was performed entirely from the exterior and avoided the removal or demolition of any structural elements. This remedy allowed for the work to be completed at a fraction of the cost of conventional methods.
