Abstract : The paper reviews documents published immediately before and after the collapse of block of housing flats, and discusses the concepts involved. The recommended design method is a 'fail-safe' method based upon concepts established by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government. The addendum is intended to apply to all large-panel structures designed after the date of publication, but not to structures built or in an advanced stage of planning before that date. (Author)
