The required service is professional review for the improvement of existent hospital building seismic design. The strengthening solution is focused on RC jacketing of the existing columns; application of carbon FRP composites in order to increase confinement and ductility capacity of structural elements; application of steel plates at edges and corners to increase confinement of the concrete; enlargement or insertion of expansion joints; addition of fluid viscous dampers to remove weak story phenomena; new RC walls to reduce the torsional problems and redistribute better the inertia forces.
