A building which collapsed and killed four workers was constructed without the assistance of an architect, the Health and Safety Executive believes. Its report on the building in Ashford, Middlesex, which collapsed during renovation work in 1995, identifies serious faults introduced when the building was extended upwards during construction in 1970. Contractor for the project was E P Wickens and Sons, which went into liquidation shortly before the collapse. 'There was no evidence of an architect being involved,' said a spokesman.
