Pathology of Building

Designing buildings is exciting and constructing them onerous. After the stimulus and the fatigue, there is little inclination to investigate the performance of the completed work or compare it with that predicted. Sadly, investigation usually takes place only when failure is catastrophic or litigation by a dissatisfied client is in hand. Few professional firms or building owners undertake systematic investigation of building failures or monitor the performance of their buildings as a matter of course. G.H. Hutton
