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 describes how the substructure of a building was constructed out of position to the extent that the steel frame could not be erected to tolerance and could not be connected to the holding down bolts.
On a recent project, because of supply problems, the contractor decided to change from the specified rebar couplers (type ‘A’) to those of another manufacturer (type ‘B’).
A reporter feels that many small consulting engineering companies rely on local authority building control departments to check their work in lieu of proper in-house quality control.
