  3. Imagine being the workman responsible for that, the guilt he would feel.

    Worse than when you forgot to tighten that compression joint and It flooded the school. ROFL

    Yeah. Sorry about that, I apologise. It was a silly thing for me to say and no laughing matter. A fine building, lost for ever.

    And Windsor Castle. Going to take years though and I don't think any of us will be around to see it finished.

    A fire expert was saying old buildings like these are very difficult to deal with for the fire service. They have high ceilings and an open space with roof timber all very well seasoned and dry as a bone.

    Firemen cant enter such a building and the height externally means their hoses wont reach.

    It makes me wonder how extensive contingency planning is for these old buildings. Do they have fully detailed drawings of the structure so they can rebuild it exactly the same.
     
  17. I'd imagine there would be an extensive 3D model/CAD for a building like that.

    All new buildings (in the UK at least on a commercial scale) are drawn and modelled under the new BIM framework. Seems probable such notable buildings would have retrospectively undergone the same process.
