Any engineers here? Is this still structurally safe to stay? Say if suay suay happens in SG, government declare HDB building still safe for 3/4 of residents to stay, but the other 1/4 got some works need to be carried out to be declared safe again.. will you sell or stay put??

The Daily Telegraph can reveal photographs of plaster crumbling off the wall on level 10, and where possible structural cracks forced a mass evacuation of the Olympic Park building.

Large cracks, seen running vertically along the wall, were examined by structural engineers yesterday, who were called in to assess the integrity of the internal support wall.

Laser monitors detected no further movement from the building.

The Daily Telegraph understands the cracks had appeared in a precast panel which had been manufactured off-site. It is understood an outer face of concrete came under pressure and a layer came off. The concrete transfers load, or weight, to the structural column. The cracks are reportedly all on a panel on level 10, but there are 51 units which have a line to that panel.

Before Hotel New World, we also never heard of buildings collapsing in SG. It turned out to be fatal miscalculation in structural load due to human error.

If happen in SG, ask the ministers to move in and stay to prove it is safe.

Just like one ah neh who drank water from the water tank where a maid's body was found to prove water is safe to drink.

 

In the not too far past, there were some buildings found to be structurally unsafe like Maryland Park.

Another is Windy Heights at Eunos in the 80s.
