Building collapse in Ilford


Recommended Posts

Just heard through the grapevine that a steel structure came down yesterday in Ilford. It was fabricated by one of my clients near Norwich, and drawn by a chap I know that does the same work as I do for them. Thankfully no one was hurt, as it collapsed just a few minutes after everyone finished for the day! http://www.london24.com/news/ilford_city_gates_building_collapse_search_for_casualties_continuing_1_1193958

No idea at the moment. Could be a design issue, or a temporary stability issue if they had a lot of wet concrete around. I'm sure it'll be thouroughly investigated. I can imagine there are PI insurance companies everywhere looking into it......
