In the review of as-built construction of one story steel frame with reinforced masonry walls, a number of aspects on the quality control of the construction were found to be substandard by falling to comply with current building code requirements and construction drawings and specifications. The designer decided that the most cost-effective and expeditious approach was to design repairs that address each issue instead of performing and overall evaluation of the structure. The objective of the project is to perform an overall structural capacity evaluation of the structural design and construction as well of an evaluation of the structure with structural deficiencies, and based on those results evaluates the repairs previously provided, provide alternative repair of the deficiencies and recommend repairs for new deficiencies found on the overall evaluation of the structure in question.
