Embarrassing & sadly deadly building roof collapse WA.


A building near me about a year ago just as I was walking past, on the other side of the road, had a poorly controlled glass roof frame structure situation with a crane. It was just shear luck that nothing serious happened.

 

'The incident occurred on the construction site of a building for the School of Design and the Built Environment.'

Yes this was a tragic accident

Hopefully they will find the cause of the collapse, to ensure that it does not happen again

Tomorrow will be the 50th anniversary of the West Gate Bridge disaster:

Years ago my engineering colleagues told me that their university medals were struck from the metal salvaged from one of the bridge disasters. I can't remember which one, but it could have been the Tacoma bridge.

 

Edit: 

I got just about everything wrong.
