Seismic upgrading of Novartis WRO-1066 building, Basel

After an examination of various options and their technical feasibility, a prestressed monostrand system was selected for the seismic upgrading of the lift shafts. This solution was far more cost-effective than the standard method using carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates. It was also possible to minimize noise and dust levels during construction.
