Abstract

In this project, we redesigned an abandoned, four-story masonry building in both steel and reinforced concrete. The renovation process for an aged masonry structure of this size was analyzed, along with a few typical situations due to the buildings unique profile and structure. Green Engineering was also a large factor in the design of the building, in an effort to decrease the cost and energy consumption.
