Turkey is home of a very rich geography and cultural heritage which is seen in the contemplation of its history. As in every society, efforts are being made to protect the existing cultural heritage in our country. It is our responsibility to protect, maintain and strengthen this heritage. Most of the buildings representing the richness of our culture are masonry structures. In the performance examination of these structures, there are difficulties in determining and interpreting their performances due to the properties’ variabilities of materials used in their construction. In this study, a masonry building located in Bayburt a western city of Turkey built between 1941-1942 using Bayburt stone was examined, information about construction technique, soil properties and material properties as well as existing problems of the structure were compiled and observed. The values obtained as a result of a survey study performed on the structure were moved to AutoCAD program and modelled with StatiCAD-Masonry Program. It was aimed to compare the earthquake performance analysis of the structure according to Old Turkey Building Earthquake Regulation (TBDY-2007) and New Turkey Building Earthquake Regulation (TBDY-2018). In the light of the analyses, the structural performance of Bayburt stone was examined and analysed according to regulations.
