DISPROPORTIONATE COLLAPSE - ROBUST BUILDINGS AND HOW TO AVOID TRAGEDY

04 Oct 2022
CPD Hub
· Where it all started; a discussion of the Ronan Point disaster.
· What tragedies have happened since, with reference to the Rana Plaza collapse and Surfside, Miami building?
· The public assume that the buildings they inhabit and access are safe, so do Structural Engineers realise that they are working in a high risk environment, responsible for the lives of many people?
· What is a ‘proportionate collapse’ and, therefore, what do we mean by the technical term ‘disproportionate collapse’?
· What is a robust building and how can an engineer ensure a building is robust?
· The importance of understanding the impacts that choosing different building materials can have.
· The strategies for designing a robust building.
· Alterations to existing buildings and how this is one of the highest risk activities.
· What are the risks going forward?
· What do we as a Building Control body expect from the design Structural Engineer?
