Proven to stand the test of time, lifeguard stations are excellent examples of adaptable structures. Thick reinforced concrete piles will tend to resist severe weather storms and minimize corrosion impact on the foundation below. This particular station has been there since 1994 withstanding unexpected changes in grade due to migration of sand deposits and excessive flooding. I took this picture the day a 25 ft storm rolled in on OAHU's North shore.
