The beachfront Seagull Beach Club, located in Cocoa Beach, Florida, is a three-story time-share condominium. In 1996, the concrete balconies (located on the north side) and walkways (located on the south side) showed signs of cracking, delamination, and spalling. The reinforcing steel required replaciement in part ,and in some areas it did not exist at all. Some of the balconies and walkways also had to be resloped to facilitate the drainage of rainwater.

In order to provide a long-term repair solution, the concept of cathodic protection and an impressed current conductive coating system was presented to and accepted by Seagull Beach Club. Much of the concrete had to be removed completely, forms installed, and replacement concrete poured.

The addition of an impressed current cathodic protection system (ICCP) was a pioneering decision by the board, since it was the first complete installation on a commercial building in the state of Florida. This decision proved to be a great investment for the owners since they are unlikely to ever have to pay for any concrete repair again, considering the extremely high chloride content in the concrete, and the age of the building (31 years old). The ICCP the system is now eight years old and will provide protection against future corrosion for another 20 years.
