Abstract: During the recent decade the reconstruction and strengthening of buildings of the significance of architectural heritage, which are located in the historical parts alongside with constructions of modern buildings has become rather urgent in Georgia. The resources of carrying capacity have been noticeably decreased during 100-150 years exploitation of such buildings. It was abetted by the performed planned changes (new openings, dismantling of walls and etc.) and damages of conduits during exploitation in different periods, which followed urbanization process (water supply, sewerage, heating, ventilation, power supply).Building-designed company "Kvaly" was set up in 1995, it has elaborated original methods for reconstruction and strengthening of old buildings.
Strengthening of foundations is made by means of the reinforced concrete edge supported monolith plates, which greatly reduces the loading on the ground and is easy to be realized technologically. Strengthening of damaged carrying walls is performed by the application of rigidly reinforced air-placed concrete; replacement of the old wood floors is made by edge supported reinforced concrete plates on the counters, which are fixed in a carrying wall by means of the edges and anchor dowels existing on the counter.The above given measures of constructional work offered by us enable one to increase the carrying capacity and exploitation term of buildings. Furthermore arrangement of additional storeys is also available.
