A Newsletter from CROSS-UK containing reports on structural safety issues.
Note: this Newsletter was published by CROSS (Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety). Since March 2021, Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety is renamed Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures (CROSS).
A reporter feels that a lack of finance is being invested in the long-term maintenance for structures and that this is a difficult issue for the CDM co-ordinator to raise with the client.

A reporter warns that precast concrete cantilever canopies which are slender and monolithic with lintels over entrance doorways can be vulnerable to sudden collapse.
