Many different size columns were cast in place as designed for foundation of various water slides. Vertical rebar cages were used, however; horizontal ties were missing during pour. Carbon fiber wrap was applied to add shear capacity that was missing from horizontal ties.
Column wraps were installed in less than 3 days and project was concluded with Fortress 105 epoxy coating which allowed construction to continue and water park to open on July 4th deadline.
