Due to the scarcity of space and change in utility of structure, vertical expansion of the structure has become essential. There can be many reasons such as ever increasing population, changes in the operating system, required improvement of safety margins etc. This will be managed by increasing the number of stories. But the existing structure may or may not be able to sustain the newly constructed stories. Since the load carrying capacity of existing structure reduces due to age and relaxation. The existing structure must be strengthened to sustain additional storey load. During the design process various governing factors (like additional load, earthquake load, additional live load etc) will be considered.
