The National Media Seeks Forensic Engineering Perspective on Collapse
A 12-story residential building collapsed on June 24, 2021 in the South Florida town of Surfside. About 55 of the 136 units at Champlain Towers South collapsed around 1:30 a.m., leaving huge piles of rubble on the ground and materials dangling from what remained of the structure in the beachfront community a few miles north of Miami Beach. Tragically, lives have been lost and the search efforts continue to find survivors. Fox News and CNN interviewed U.S. Forensic engineers to gain insight into the forensic process used to evaluate building failures.
