A disaster is the last link in a chain of events. This online lecture will use case studies to explain how to avoid disasters from happening and how to save a collapsing building.

This presentation will use case studies to outline how a partial collapse of a building was saved from becoming a disaster.

The lecture will showcase a forensic analysis of the events leading up to the partial collapse and shows how the first link in a chain of events for a building or aviation disaster can occur many years before the disaster actually happens.

Our expert presenter, who has dealt with damaged buildings since the 1970’s, will describe in detail an assessment of what to look for, and how a developing chain of events can be identified before it becomes a disaster.

Reasons to attend

  • Learn about the techniques used to save a collapsing building

  • See how to identify the links in a chain of events that could lead to a disaster

  • Learn about forensic analysis charts

Intended for


The presentation is intended for structural engineers of all grades and those involved in the construction or built environment industry.
