Another reason that increases the importance of this project, the building is very old which means it doesn't consider the basic stranded in construction from environmental and shape sides. Finally; the building is located on the main street which makes these arrangements more crucial that must be considered through design stage. The project involves two phases. In the first phase, “first graduation project” which include assessment and analyzing of the building from architectural, structural, environmental, electrical, and mechanical aspects. In the second phase “second graduation project” which include redesign where the new design will take in consideration all problems in current building and try to solve or reduce the effects of these problems.
