The shopping mall will increase the number of shops to be rented and change the purposes of usage such as spa and health centres. Strengthening of six beams was awarded to FOSTA to increase shear and flexural loading capacities of the said beams using carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) wrap. The flexible installation schedule and almost zero addition of weight to the existing structures provide great advantages to the building alternation work. The owner chose CFRP method because of: no hacking – no noise, flexible installation schedule, fast, and saving money.
