Appraisal of an Existing Three-Storey Concrete Building

The appraisal of existing buildings has become an increasingly important area of work for practising engineers. This is partly due to the increasing attention given to the preservation and rehabilitation of historically significant and architecturally interesting buildings. The purpose of this paper is to discuss some of the engineering issues related to the appraisal of an existing three-storey concrete building. A load test carried out to ascertain the structural adequacy of the building and its foundations is briefly discussed. A method for assessing the durability of the existing building is also presented. Yue Choong Kog
