The structure is an existing 12-storey building with one basement. The building, built during the early 1960s, has a base plan of about 2,000 m2 and a total height of about 65m. The building is owned by Insular Life and is located along Ayala Avenue corner Paseo de Roxas St., Makati City.

The building is currently utilized as commercial spaces at the ground floor and office spaces at the succeeding floors. The building’s location ensures it is a key asset for Insular Life, which is central to their business development and growth.

Due to the relatively old image of the building, an exterior architectural upgrade involving the front and rear facade was performed by means of a face lifting using modern architectural finishes such as curtain walls, granite stones, aluminum claddings, etc.

ACO performed the detailed structural assessment and retrofitting design, including seismic upgrading, for the building’s structural rehabilitation and renovation.
