I recently got query from my client , a building was made up to 2nd floor (two storied ) ,and the work was under hold for last 20yrs and now the owner wants to start the construction again.The proposed structure was sanctioned for 9 storied building and it has been informed that the foundations were also constructed accordingly. Now there is no documentations available. My question is how to ensure the load capacity of the foundation. Is there any engineering /process/ testing to determine the expected load capacity of the existing structure.
