CivilPro has been engaged by Management Committee of the building to carry out seismic assessment and proposed options for seismic strengthening works. On January 1st 2012, all previous standard were withdrawn and were replaced by the Eurocodes, including Eurocode 8 for the design of seismic resistant structures. In this project Eurocode 8 Part 1 & 3 was used to assess and obtain the seismic performance of the building under a range of seismic loading. The challenge in this project was to seismic strengthen the building to a certain level of earthquake and to define seismic technique to meet the client budget. Due to budget limitation various options proposed to client such as constructing concrete shear walls to all four corners in combination with steel bracing to the to convex sides of the building in order to make the structure less torsionally flexible and increase the stiffness on each storey.
