Recently, seismic diagnosis and earthquake resistant reinforcement works of buildings built before the new earthquake resistant standards are conducted in various places. However, there is no uniformity in sampling methods, and it seems that there are occasional extreme variations in the determination of representative intensity of the building. In addition, the physical properties of structure concrete which factor of the above-mentioned variations are considered to reflect the horizontal and vertical distribution at the time of concrete placing. Therefore, this study, the core of the existing buildings to be disassembled was collected, and the distribution of physical properties of structure concrete was examined. All target buildings were reinforced concrete constructions, and cores were collected from pillars and waist walls. In addition, there are parts that were built at the time without the ready-mixed concrete plant (from 1960) and pump truck (from 1964). Experimental results of horizontal and vertical distributions of compressive intensity at the pillars and waist walls revealed that there was no greatest decrease in strength and there was not much difference between the maximum strength of the pillar and 300 mm from the vicinity of the pillar and about 300 mm from F. L. Therefore, from this study, it seems that the position of 300 mm from the pillar and F. L. is suitable for the measurement position which develops the representative intensity of the building.
