For decades, the Eden Roc Resort and spa has been a famous destination for tourists and sun seekers coming to Miami Beach, Florida. However, deterioration of the hotel’s 70,000 square foot (6500 square meter) concrete pool deck, between the hotel and the beach and over hotel parking convinced the owner that repairs were necessary.

The pool plaza structure consists of both conventionally-reinforced and post-tensioned construction. The goals of the restoration program were twofold: structural and aesthetic. Deterioration to the structural concrete deck and underside beams and columns had to be repaired. Any failed post-tension cables had to be repaired or replaced. The failed waterproofing on the pool deck structural slab had to be removed and replaced. The pool walls themselves required repair of spalled areas. Then, after the structural and waterproofing issues were corrected, the appearance of the pool deck plaza had to be completely modernized. 

As important as the work itself was the schedule. During planning and budgeting of the project, the engineer and construction manager had established a 9-month construction schedule. However, the owner did not take bids until early July 2002, and the pool had to be open and available by the end of December 2002. Once the pool and plaza were opened, ancillary work needed to be completed by the end of January 2003. Work in January had to be phased and coordinated with the hotel, so the pool patrons were not displaced.
