Seven-year-old zero carbon school demolished due to leaks


I hope the demolition allowed for recycling of materials not damaged such as windows, doors, lighting etc. That would slightly offset the environmental damage by this disaster. Do clients reall have to take risks with experimental designs. Surely not if the design is sound and the detailing thorough combined with a high quality build the building should not fall apart with rot. It is possible that odd features may not perform as intended but not the whole building fail. Buildings like this really set back the promotion "green buildings" at a time when they are needed especially in schools.
