Possible Implications of Corrosion in the Champlain Towers Collapse

Cindy O’Malley, AMPP.

Cindy O'Malley, chief operating officer of the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP) and executive director of the AMPP Global Center, recently joined our podcast to discussion corrosion concerns in residential buildings and the possible implications of corrosion in the Champlain Towers collapse in Surfside, Florida, USA.

Topics include possible factors related to the building's original design; what homeowners or other asset owners can do to mitigate risk; why engineers believe the failure likely originated at the bottom of the building; what could have caused a foundation failure; where to start looking for the root cause; and other potential factors that aren't currently being discussed in the news.
