The Structural Engineer, Volume 99, Issue 7, 2021, Page(s) 2
This month we present a report expressing concerns about a repeat failure of building cladding, in severe but not exceptional winds, that saw panels fall to the public street below.

David MacKenzie discusses the importance of structural safety in the design and construction phase and ways in which risks can be mitigated.
