Therefore, it is possible to observe how building elements which were designed to be used from 12 to 25 years have been actually used and replaced. This is its first time that the CHS housing has been investigated since it was first occupied. Because more than 27 years have passed since the housing complex was built, a decreasing number of households properly understand the advantages of the CHS, which makes it easy to repair and renovate the infill of the units. The CHS partitioning wall system, which can be installed, replaced and removed without demolishing the ceiling and floor, reduces the construction time and cost, and also the waste of building materials. It will be important to introduce the benefits of CHS to the residents of the housing complex so they will be able to renovate their units according to their future needs.
