Hi Fellows: I am working on a project located in Phoenix (AZ). A wood framed apartment complex with cast in place concrete exterior blaconies spanning in the long direction, supported on CMU walls. The balconies are separated from the building. The balconies are under-designed (under reinforced) and are deflecting. the "allowable" service load is about 20 psf vs. 60psf required by code (using USD). One repair solution I was thinking of is to jack-up the balconies and install 2 steel beams (TS) underneath (one at each end) which will let the slab span in the short direction. Do you have any other ideas besides removing and rebuilding these balconies. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated Antonio S. Luisoni Consulting SE Granada Hills, CA aslcse@aol
