The Project

It is a multi-storey reinforced concrete building consisting of a basement, ground floor, 3 storeys and a flat roof. It has been operating since 1960 as a private clinic in the provincial town of Livadia.


The aim is the architectural, statics and earthquake-resistance upgrade of the building, as well as the upgrade of the electrical and mechanical installations, without affecting the internal partitioning and layout of the clinic, since it will continue to be used as a clinic.


We suggested interventions on the existing load-bearing structural elements of the staircase and elevator shaft and, if these were insufficient, we suggested the addition of a new shear wall externally, without causing any alteration to the façade openings, in order to increase the strength and stiffness of the building against earthquake.


We suggested the reinforcement of the existing load-bearing elements of the stairway and the elevator shaft and the addition of a new shear wall externally, without causing any alteration to the façade openings, in order to increase the strength and stiffness of the building against earthquake. This creates a safe staircase, a secure lift, adequately shielded escape routes – also against fire, and the architectural design is not affected, since the interventions are practically invisible.


The innovation of the statics and earthquake-resistance design lies in the way we intervene to strengthen the existing elements. 


Interventions include the addition of high performance concrete, anchors, dowels and all modern types of connections.


Thus, all the objectives set and the high speed of construction are achieved, since the building needs to be renovated in the minimum period in order to reopen.
