Lessons from a Canadian Carpark Roof Collapse

The Building Research Establishment, assisted by Bradshaw, Buckton & Tonge, has studied the report prepared by the Inquiry Commissioner (Dan Closkey) on the failure of the ‘Save on foods’ store in Station Square, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. The aim of the work was to determine whether there were any implications from this failure for the recommendations in BS 5950: Part 1. The study has identified some points in the interpretation of the Code which, it is felt, should be highlighted to practising design engineers. D.B. Moore and A.D. Weller
