In a tilt-up type of building that was built in 1980 in Northern California, a square tube column HSS5x5x3/16 was bumped by some vehicle that crated a permanent measurable deflection of 1.5 inches from the ceiling level to the floor.
Floor to the top of the girder is about 17 feet height. The girder above is 5.125"by30"glu-lam girder. This column deflects along the same direction of the glu-lam girder. The columns are spaced at 53.5 feet and girders are spaced at 22.5 feet.
(15DL+12LL)*22.5*53.5 = 18.1 kip DL + 14.5 kip LL = 32.6 kips
AISC ASD Column Table has allowable P-load capacity (L=17ft) = 47 kips which takes out about 70% of column capacity.
If I take the P-delta into consideration the M = 48.9 kip-inch:
Sxx = 5.03 in^3, Bending stress to the HHS = 9.72 ksi which takes out about 35% of pure bending capacity.
This column is not a part of lateral-resisting-frame.
The column was probably design as pined-pined connection.
1. Should I consider P-delta?
2. Should it be pulled (jacked) back to a plumb position?
3. Should additional reinforcement be added on to this steel column?
What are you recommendations?

ps: I have many digital pictures of the condition. I can e-mail it to you if you send me a request at "szchang(--nospam--at)pacbell.net" .
