Constructed in 1984, Sound of the Sea II condominiums, Emerald Isle, NC, USA, underwent comprehensive repairs in 2007 and 2008. Repair and preservation technologies implemented on this project included impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) on balconies and localized galvanic cathodic protection in corridors and roof parapet repairs. After 11 years in service, ICCP continues to provide protection within the original design parameters.
