(corroded) steel elements. Underlying steel support structure compromised Due to extensive amount of corrosion conditions considered a danger to life safety Removal and replacement advised Cracked terra-cotta Extensive Corrosion REPAIR OPTIONS:

Option #1 Remove and not replace. Option #2 Retain the existing steel structure, to support a lighter GFRP and light gauge metal framing. WHY GFRP? GFRP or Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic High strength to weight ratio Corrosion resistant - Resists salt water, chemicals, and the environment unaffected by acid rain, salts and most

chemicals Ability to mold complex shapes Low maintenance For the Old South Building GFRP allows for replacement in kind while minimizing further unnecessary demolition
