Launched in 2007, Jaya One is the home of numerous restaurants, retail outlets and PJ Live Arts centre. Located in section 13 of Petaling Jaya, Jaya One is an up-and-coming shopping centre that meets the need of the neighbouring community.
The structure was under construction when the client proposed a building extension for a business centre.
An additional link bridge was to be added and supported by the existing basement structure. The basement beams required strengthening measures to cater for this extension.
We undertook the design of the strengthening works for the beam by providing carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) to accomodate for the additional reinforcements required as per the original consultant’s advice. The remedial approach was based on enhancing the structural capacity of the beams to compensate for the additional loadings. The remedial design involving the strengthening works was proposed and supervised until completion.
