Re: Breaking News - 8-story building in Istanbul collapsed

It happens in the UK too. I bought a bungalow for my parents about 20 years ago. Fortunately the lender's survey picked up the fact that roof rafters had been removed to make more space in the loft, so that had to be fixed before the bank would grant my mortgage. My Homebuyers report had not picked that up.

Looks like sea sand could be the big problem ,the shells are still in the concrete . You can tell which buildings have been rendered with sea salt just by looking it leaves a residue.

Re: Breaking News - 8-story building in Istanbul collapsed

Seems that the head of CHP has named someone that he holds responsible for the extra floors. We probably won't hear much more about it though.

Re: Breaking News - 8-story building in Istanbul collapsed

Yesterday I was out and about and called in to the çay ev and the talk there was that a business moved into the bottom floor and they knocked the supports out to get machinery in and they did not realise those supports were load bearing and therefore supporting the above structure.

Re: Breaking News - 8-story building in Istanbul collapsed

The investigation report is out and it seems a culmination of faults have been found .

The concrete as Enoch suggested was not up to TSE standard , it was found to contain Mussel shells and from the salt corrosion found on the iron supports the suggestion of the use of unwashed sea sand ..... Removed columns on ground floor had been replaced with rebar not sufficient for the height and weight of the building as myself and Bickern suggested , not helped by a later addition of 2 extra illegal floors from original plan as Ibo alluded too ... the calculations of the rebars would have been seen not to be sufficient and would have been pointed out if a proper plan had been submitted for approval, for the permission of change of the ground floor as Bramidian suggested ...none submitted ...no surprise there ....and as seen and pointed out by people who know Turkey well, and of the sometimes lax and deficient building control. that can occur in Turkey.

It always comes back to money, incompetence, or both.
