The paper presents results of investigation carried out on structure of the cultural center building in Dębica in Poland. Technical condition of mentioned building after 40 years of exploitation did not allow for its further use. In order to check the reliability of the structure, the authorities of the city commissioned an expertise. This study included basic structure measurements, loads statement and static analysis as well as check of limit states. As a result of the conducted analyses, it was found that the roof structure made of steel girder with web openings did not comply with resistant conditions. The paper presents brief description of building structure, numerical analyses and proposals of strengthening the roof girder.
