Abstract - The objective of this project is to analyze and design an existing old structure using actual codes and specifications, locating the structure in a seismic risk zone. This project performs a load analysis of the structure using the International Building Code 2009 specifications, and the reinforced concrete designs using the Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary 2008 specifications. The structural system is a “Special Moment Resistant Frame”. The designs of reinforced concrete members included in this project are: beams, columns, slab, joints, walls and foundation. For the selected typical designed elements, serviceability and strength requirements are checked and conclusions and recommendations are given. Key Terms - Analysis, Design, Reinforced Concrete, Special Moment Resistant Frame.
