Abstract:A landmark reinforced concrete building serving as general headquarters for the armed forces of the Philippines was burned for the third time. This paper discusses the investigation, design, construction, and monitoring procedures used in the structural rehabilitation. Extensive use of computer analyses and design, as well as computer-aided drafting, besides speeding up the design process, resulted in effective communication of the designer's intentions in a timely manner to all concerned. The cost of rehabilitation, not to mention the preservation of the historical value of the building and reduced time to occupancy, led to the owner's decision to rehabilitate rather than demolish and reconstruct this building.
