The project consists of the structural assessment and retrofitting design of an existing 9-storey, with basement and roof deck, commercial building located in Baguio City.

The existing structure, with a total floor area of about 4,500 sq.m., was built using reinforced concrete frames and is resting on a bored pile foundation system.

Due to a fire incident in 2008, the 7th and 8th floor of the existing building was damaged. A structural retrofitting was performed on the affected elements to restore their structural strength. The load capacity of the existing 8th and 9th floors was also upgraded from the previous office and residential occupancy to storage/warehouse occupancy.

ACO performed the detailed structural assessment and retrofitting design for the project.
