Webinar

Champlain Towers South – WJE Collapse Investigation

May 21, 2024 | Tue 12:00 America/Chicago

Duration: 1.0 Hour

CE Credits: 1.0

$300

In the early morning of June 24, 2021, the eastern half of the 12-story Champlain Towers South Condominium collapsed, killing 98 residents of the 40-year-old building in Surfside, Florida. WJE was retained by attorneys representing the condominium association to determine the cause of the collapse and provide litigation support. Based on document review, field investigation, material testing, and analysis, we determined that the collapse was initiated by punching shear failures in the pool deck slab, which failed columns at the south face of the building, leading to the collapse.

  • Course will award 1.0 hour of continuing education
  • Diamond Review approved in all 50 states
  • This webinar will be recorded.
