In this paper, axial strains and lateral displacements of columns in a 58-story reinforced concrete building were measured using vibrating wire gauge and laser scanner, respectively, and compared with predicted values. Predictions were obtained using ASAP, which is a 3D construction stage analysis program developed based on PCA report. Comparisons indicated that columns in the middle of floor plan showed good correlation with predictions. However, the columns in the corners showed some deviations. Lateral displacement of columns between measurement and estimation showed similar trends but considerable deviations, which are seemingly caused by construction error of column faces, and inaccuracy in differential vertical displacement prediction.
