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 was involved in correcting a cold formed galvanised square hollow section (SHS) four storey balcony structure where longitudinal splits formed in at least two of the four columns.
A reporter, who used to be involved with building control, believes that local authorities have a duty to decide if a danger exists when a member of the public draws their attention to a potentially dangerous situation.
The client's consulting engineer had designed a new basement but, when queried by the consulting engineer for the main contractor, was unable to provide survey information for the adjoining property.
A reporter is concerned about structural engineers developing structural calculations and drawings based on the Architects’ drawings only, with no site visits.
