By covering the existing exterior with a glass curtain wall, we modernized the image of the building. Because it was a building that was designed and constructed under the old earthquake resistance standards, upon acquiring certification under the Act on Promotion of Seismic Retrofitting of Buildings, we completed seismic retrofitting.
