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


Dear AJ I think we need a air-accident style investigation on what went wrong here. I understand that White Design may be bound by a CA and won't be keen on this for PR reasons but we need as a profession to learn the lessons from failed projects like this. Can the AJ investigate and report on this and show what details failed? I'd be very surprised if warped timber on the roof was the problem - wasn't that just a rainscreen? Desperately sad story. The "good hat and boots" response is not good enough there has to be a more beautiful way of building that is leak proof.
