Addition of storeys to a house
The project is about a single-storey building built in 2000. The load assumption for the structural design loads predicted the addition of 3 extra storeys. The present owner wants to build 3 additional storeys and a roof addition. The complexity of the design lies on the fact that the original 1999 design didn‘t comply with the anti –seismic standards.
The additional structure will be a steel structure with composite slabs . The columns will be extended into the foundation and through the 1st Floor.
The two structures are completely independent.
