Engineering Lessons to be Learned on Demolition Projects – The Market Street Building Collapse Tragedy
May 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
In June 2013, a building being demolished in the 2100 block of Market Street in Philadelphia collapsed onto the Salvation Army building. As a result of this catastrophe, six people died, one person committed suicide, and 14 people were injured.
Questions regarding the responsibility of the design professionals, developer of the collapsed building, Salvation Army, and demolition contractor were pursued in civil litigation. This presentation is an interactive discussion of applicable codes, regulations, responsibilities of parties, testimony, and the trial outcome.
