Restoration of a stately building in the Serrallo neighbourhood of Tarragona
Josep Oliva i Oliva

Technical assistance to the managment for the rehabilitation of an apartment building that suffered bombing during the civil war. The main project consisted of replacing existing floors (wooden beam and ceramic board) for composite slab, retaining and repairing the original masonry walls.

Document and justify the changes proposed by the management during the work of rehabilitation and propose new solutions to unforeseen issues as they arose.

The proposed construction process consisted of the demolition and implementation of the floors working in a  downwards direction, starting from the roof deck and moving towards the ground floor. The reinforcement of some sections of the masonry walls consisted of anchored steel jacketed by chemical tacks.
