RE: high-rise evaluation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Steve,

 

ASCE has a couple of documents that address existing buildings in general:

 

Guideline for Structural Condition Assessment of Existing Buildings (SEI/ASCE 11-99)

Guideline for Condition Assessment of the Building Envelope, (ASCE 30-00)

Seismic Evaluation of Existing Buildings, SEI/ASCE 31-03

 

Granted, I haven’t specifically used any of them (though I know a little about 31-03), so I can’t comment on what specific guidance they have (if any) for high-rise structures. But at least they might be a start.

Subject: high-rise evaluation

 

Good afternoon,

 

I am trying to find documents (for example, guides or manuals) pertaining to the engineering evaluation of the condition of existing high-rise buildings (structural, as well as mechanical, electrical, and other aspects). 

 

Could anybody give me some advice on where to look for such documents?

 

Thanks,
