Collapsed Building In Florida Flagged For “Major Structural Damage” In 2018

The Champlain Towers, the site of the massive partial building collapse in Florida, was cited as a “major concern” following a 2018 structural report.

According to The New York Posta lack of proper drainage on the pool deck of Champlain Towers South condo, which sits above the building’s parking garage, was the source of the “main issue,” engineer Frank Morabito wrote at the time.

Morabito had warned that years of standing water had seriously damaged the concrete structural slabs below the deck, calling it a problem that would be “extremely expensive” to fix.

“Failure to replace waterproofing in the near future will cause the extent of the concrete deterioration to expand exponentially,” Morabito wrote in his “Structural Field Survey Report,” which was produced for the Condominium Association.

It’s still unclear whether the issues Morabito highlighted were formally addressed or not.  The collapse has left at least four dead and 159 people still unaccounted for.
