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).
Concerns were raised and strengthening works required after vertical movement was observed on the safety critical surface at the top of an 8m high embankment.
Concerns are raised after a substantial precast element, weighing over 10t, had been placed in position and used as part of the shuttering for an in-situ pour without it being designed to act as a shutter.
On review of a design for a school extension, a reporter noted several major issues including an almost total lack of vertical bracing throughout the extension.
