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 highlights concerns about how alterations to a large panel system (LPS) roof may affect any evacuations from the rooftop by helicopter rescues.
A masonry wall settled and cracked after four courses of Engineering grade B bricks were substituted (not by the designer) for the original in-situ concrete padstones on cost and handling grounds.
A 2.5m high retaining wall showed signs of movement not long after backfilling, and it was found that the deflection was due to creep in the bed joints of the immature wall.
