The building contains administrative offices in addition to medical and laboratory sections. The project contains two stages, namely: evaluation and redesign stage. In the first stage, the building has been evaluated from different design aspects mainly architectural, structural, environmental, electrical and mechanical aspects. This has been carried out using different engineering computer programs, to identify the weak points of the building performance in different design aspects. In the second stage, the building redesigned to improve its performance through employing remedial actions for the weak points determined in the first stage.
