Strengthening of Villa in Megalo Kavouri

Project description

Client: Private person
Location: Megalo Kavouri, Vouliagmeni
Year: 2017

The villa is located in one of the most expensive areas of Attica, in Megalo Kavouri, and consists of a basement and two stories. In the framework of deep renovation, the seismic upgrade of the load bearing structure was decided.

Tasks description

Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) systems were used for the strengthening of the building structure to satisfy the architectural requirements for not altering the dimensions of the structural elements or the height of the interior of the building. Columns, beams, and walls were strengthened. Carbon fiber fabrics, carbon fiber reinforced polymer laminates, anchoring with carbon fiber-anchors, and steel plates were applied. The dimensions of the structural elements remained practically unaltered (<5mm increase). The project was executed by the specialized ENKA crew, certified by Sika. Due to low disruption of FRP systems application, parallel architectural works and finishes took place, resulting in a much shorter time of finishing the project of the deep renovation of villa.
