To ensure that a building won’t collapse, a lot of money is spent on a project. This implies that every building regulation is fulfilled, and proper engineering is done to manage the soil and heaviness of the building.

Poor quality materials

In order to save cost, some companies use poor quality material. In return, this material may not hold as long. Thus resulting in a building collapse

Worker mistakes

In some cases, workers may not follow the proper instructions for building or installation. For instance, if a worker did not properly mix the concrete. This could create a weakened structure. Thus causing a building collapse.

The building owner must provide maintenance. This keeps the building in perfect running condition. Additionally, it helps avoid any rising problems to prevent it from collapsing.
