Bailey’s Crossroads – Skyline Plaza March 2, 1973 in Bailey’s Crossroads, Virginia, 14 construction workers were killed while 36 others remained injured. Apartment building A-4 and the attached parking garage of The Skyline Plaza, an apartment, hotel, office, and shopping center complex, collapsed due to inappropriate removal of forms, resulting the shear force around the columns to cause the structure to collapse. This large of a catastrophe didn’t happen due to one failure. One mistake led to another creating a domino effect. The question is, where did it begin? The article about the Skyline Plaza walks the reader through the design and construction phases, and the analysis of failure to better comprehend the pre-construction and construction

What is that strange orange brick building? Why should I care about that? That striking orange, brick building is the Guardian Building of downtown Detroit. When deciding to go to a historical site in the city, I was drawn in by the history of the place. I am relatively new to the city and when I heard about this place, I knew that’s where I wanted to go. When our group traveled together to the site, it became apparent why this building is not only important to Detroit, but to all cities. The Guardian Building was not only a great fixture of the past, but it is a leading example of the efforts to bring a city back to greatness.
New High School for Summit City project is thoroughly communicated to all members involved and is located in the north section of Summit City, Ontario. The owner of this project is Prince Edward Regional Board of Education. Summit City has two public high schools and the Board of Education applied for ministry approval for the construction of a new education facility, with a total of $19,000,000. The existing schools would have to be teared down, costing them a total of $2,600,000, so that one site can be sold to build a condominium and the other site can be used to the board of educational regional office. I am appointed to give the owner, Prince Edward Regional Board of Education, an idea of which is the best project delivery methods for this kind of case scenario. The three methods of project delivery are:

Culture is well represented, but not multiple languages. Overall, Meadowlane does an exceptional job of accepting and representing different cultures. It’s heartwarming to students to see many different ethnicities represented around your own school. It’s very eye opening to Caucasian students to understand and see other students as the same. In my elementary, there were only photos and posters of Caucasian students or adults. Although, Meadowlane does not represent language very well for their school demographics. Their school is very diverse with a large population of ELL students. It would be awesome if some of those students could take a break from the stress of learning English. This break could be just by seeing a poster or reading a
Kansas City Hyatt Collapse An investigation into the design flaw of two floating balconies above the atrium of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri, is discussed in this report. The following investigation includes a closer look at disputes in design between the engineering consultants and the fabrication company, as well as an examination of load capacity. In the design, three walkways were intertwined between the second, third, and fourth floors above the hotel’s atrium (Leyendecker, E., Marshall, R., Pfrang, E., & Woodward, K., 1982). The second floor’s walkway was suspended from the fourth, which was suspended from the roof. The third floor’s walkway was hanging from the roof of the atrium, independent to the other two. When a collapse occurred on July 17, 1981, the fourth floor, which was suspended from the roof, collapsed and landed on top of the second floor. As a result, both floors crashed into the atrium at ground-level (Leyendecker, E., Marshall, R., Pfrang, E., & Woodward, K., 1982). The main causes of the collapse are questionable engineering ethics, negligence, and disputing agencies. These two factors resulted in a poor foundation with lack of consideration of large stress on the structure (Hyatt Regency Walkway Collapse, 2006).
The construction of high rise buildings has changed and become more structural and integrity sound. The event of 9/11 showed how older construction and the application of force would lead to one of the most tragic events in Untied States history. Construction techniques that were used in the 1970’s are totally different than today’s techniques. The World Trade Center was constructed around 1966. The building would consist of seven buildings in one. Soon after the World Trade Center would be built, it would face a major event in its time line. In the same year of the building being built, it would also have a major fire on one of its high rise floors. The fire would damage the main flour with some damage to the lower floor. At this time the
