Paper Title:
Development and Advance in Adding-Storey Retrofit of Existing Buildings in China
  Abstract

Residential houses and civil buildings in China were mainly low-rise buildings before 1980s. With the rapid development of urban construction, urban land became more and more scarce. Thus in recent years, it becomes increasingly popular nationwide to add more stories to existing building for its particular techno-economy advantages. Adding-storey plays an important role in mitigating the pressure of demand for more building sites, improving the living condition,and accelerating the modernization progress of cities’ shabby zones. In this paper, a brief review was presented on the evolution, status-quo and trends of the adding-storey of existing buildings in China, and three new adding-storey methods using passive control technology were introduced, which can be used for peers' reference.
