Building Renovation

Project Location: Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Client: Advance Construction (Cambodia) Co., Ltd.

AE was hired by Advance Construction to provide a basic structural investigation, demolition plan, and structural design and construction drawings for an existing two-story structure along Russian Boulevard in Phnom Penh.

Preliminary structural investigation revealed that the existing structure was failing considerably, and required a full structural upgrade. Since this building shares a wall with its neighbors on two sides, meticulous care was required to demolish and restore the building without disturbing or undermining the adjacent buildings. Before the new structure could be designed, AE first designed and detailed the sequence and temporary support for the demolition phase.

AE’s scope of work also included routine site observations during construction, preparation of field reports including photos, lists of construction defects, and recommendation for corrective actions.

Project Duration: March 2014 to  June 2014
Building size: 300 m2
Services Provided: Structural investigation, Demolition/shoring design,  Structural design and Construction drawings
