 +==== 2. Structural Features ====
 +----
 +**2.1 Typical Number of Stories:** 5
 +
 +**2.2 Plan Shape:** Rectangular,​ solid
 +
 +**2.3 Type of Structural System: Steel: Braced frame:** Concentric connections in all panels
 +
 +//​**Additional comments on structural system:**// Moment-resisting steel-braced frames
 +
 +  * **2.3.1 Gravity load-bearing systems:** The floor system, transferring the gravity loads to the beams and columns and finally to the footings
 +  * **2.3.2 Lateral load-resisting systems:** Steel-braced frames provide the lateral resistance
 +  * **2.4 Type of infill wall material:** Hollow concrete blocks, sandwich panels or rectangular fired clay bricks
 +  * **2.5 Type of Foundation:​** Shallow Foundation: Mat foundation
 +  * **2.6 Type of Floor System:** Cast-in-place beamless reinforced concrete floor
 +    * **//​Additional comments on floor system://** Cast-in-situ flat slabs
 +  * **2.7 Type of Roof System and Roofing Material:** Cast-in-place beamless reinforced concrete roof
 +    * **//​Additional comments on roof system://** Cast-in-situ flat slabs

 +
 +==== 3. Building Construction Process ====
 +----
 +**3.1 Is this construction type addressed by codes/​standards?​** Yes
 +  * //If yes, provide the title of the code or standard and the year when the first code/​standard addressing this type of construction had been issued? Include any applicable codes:// ​ NC 46:​2014"​Construcciones sismorresistentes. Requisitos para el diseño y construcción"​
 +
 +**3.2 Are building permits required?**
 +
 +**3.3 Explain unit construction cost:** 56.19 CUC/m2
 +
 +//per m2 of built-up area expressed using a currency used in the region, and, if possible, an equivalent amount in $US in the brackets e.g. 200 Rs/m2 (5 $US/m2) (When calculating the conversion between local currency and U.S. dollars, please use the market rate if it is different from the official rate))//
 +
 +==== 4. Socio-Economic Issues ====
 +----
 +**4.1 Typical number of inhabitants?​**
 +  * Day: >20
 +  * Night: >20
 +
 +**4.2 Economic Level of Inhabitants*:​** Low-income class (poor)
 +
 +//*Below are the general guidelines related to the economic status of the inhabitants//​
 +  * Very Poor = lowest 10% of the population (per GDP)
 +  * Poor = lowest 30% of the population
 +  * Middle Class = from the lowest 30% up to the top 20% of the population
 +  * Rich = top 20% of the population
 +
 +**4.3 Is earthquake insurance for this construction type typically available?​** No
 +
 +==== 5. Earthquake Performance During Past Earthquakes ====
 +----
 +**5.1 Damage patterns observed in past earthquakes for this construction type:** Unknown damage
 +
 +**5.2 Seismic Deficiency: Structural System** (Frames, walls, etc.) Unknown deficiencies
 +
 +**5.3 Seismic Deficiency: Foundation** Unknown deficiencies
 +
 +**5.4 Seismic Vulnerability Rating:**
 +
 +Prior to filling out the information required in the table below, please read the Guidelines here:
 +
 +[[http://​www.world-housing.net/​wp-content/​uploads/​2015/​06/​Seismic-Vulnerability-Rating.pdf]]
 +
 +^                              ^  High Vulnerability\\ (Very poor seismic performance) ​ ^     ​^ ​ Medium Vulnerability ​ ^      ^     ​^ ​ Low Vulnerability\\ (Excellent seismic performance) ​ ^
 +^                              ^  A                                                     ​^ ​ B  ^  C                     ​^ ​ D   ​^ ​ E  ^  F                                                    ^
 +| Seismic Vulnerability Class  |                                                        |     ​| ​                       |  -l  |  o  |                                                       |
 +
 +//** Notes:**//
 +
 +  * o = Expected seismic vulnerability class
 +  * |- =Probable vulnerability range –lower bound
 +  * -| =Probable vulnerability range-upper bound
 +//Once you have determined the seismic vulnerability class for this construction type, copy the above symbols: o, |-, and -| as appropriate and place them into the table.//
 +
 +  * **Additional comments** (e.g. explain how this vulnerability rating was assigned) Low to moderate vulnerability
