The Structural Failure of Building Exteriors. A Legal, Engineering and Owner Perspective.
In recent years there have been numerous media reports in Canada of marble, concrete, balcony glass and windows detaching and falling off building exteriors onto pedestrian areas. The most alarming occurrence is of glass, marble and cement cladding failing risking serious injury to person and property.
Some incidents can be characterized as unique events that are addressed by building insurance policies. However, when the cause is a failure that can be traced to the construction, design or engineering of the building it raises many legal questions for developers, owners, managers, insurers, architects, contractors, engineers and governmental authorities.
