This research is focused on the structural renovation of middle sized industrial buildings of this century. -First of all we have to evaluate the methods and procedures to examine the structure of the building. -Secondly, the cause of the damage and the way the structure and the stability are affected will be focused on to gain a qualitative idea of the state the building is in. -Finally we will examine the reparation, the reuse and expansion of the structure. 'Durability' is very important at this point; every intervention or adaptation must increase the potentiality of the building.
