The project involves the design and construction of the interventions required for the strengthening of a 2-storey masonry building in Chalkida against seismic loads, so that to enable the addtion of two new floors. of reinforced concrete to add two new floors. Apart from the masonry walls, the building also had a small number of reinforced concrete columns. The design was carried out in 2019 employing the Greek Interventions Code, KANEPE.
The proposed solution included the strengthening with shotcrete jackets of most of the load bearing masonry walls, and the upgrading of the RC columns with FRP wraps.
All analyzes were performed using the SeismoBuild and SeismoStruct programs.
The construction of the project was carried between January and May of 2020.
