The paper discusses examples of the use of cast iron columns in existing post-industrial buildings. The results of experimental investigations in which a cast iron column originating from an existing structure was subjected to compression, were presented. The load carrying capacity of the element was assessed in the light of historical design procedures, demonstrating their conservativeness resulting from material uncertainties. The examples of failures of cast iron columns, resulting from errors committed during modernization works, were also presented.
