This month Ron Slade has selected a sketch by Bob Treadwell of Waterman Infrastructure & Environment Ltd. Bob receives an e-book of his choice from the Institution’s current catalogue.
All the articles from the November/December 2018 issue - a Structural Awards 2018 special.
In this article, we summarise CROSS newsletter No. 52 from Structural-Safety.
This newsletter includes reports demonstrating deficiencies and near-misses on projects large and small. The bearings on a major new bridge have caused concern. A support post for a street sign fractured, sadly causing a fatality.
There have been several reported collapses, and a grey area has been identified whereby walls were removed in a multistorey building without permission having been obtained.
As a variation on our usual theme, a success story demonstrating good engineering practice is also included.
