The Seismic Retrofitting Project (SRP) third phase (2014– 2018) will include the design of retrofitting systems suitable for the selected building prototypes.

With these techniques, SRP will carry out numerical modeling of retrofitted models and/or structural components and will organize a final peer review meeting to present the results and get feedback from international and national experts in the field of retrofitting historic sites.

SRP will also oversee the development of construction documents and work on the seismic reinforcement of three of the four prototype sites, including the condition assessment of wall paintings at the Church of Kuño Tambo. As a result of this work, SRP Building Prototypes will become model case studies, illustrating how retrofitting techniques can be implemented as part of a larger conservation project. It will demonstrate technically feasible solutions to seismic retrofitting in countries where access to high-tech construction materials and professional expertise is limited.
