NIST will investigate Champlain Towers South collapse

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology, a federal research laboratory specializing in engineering and other technical areas, announced on June 30 that it would conduct a full technical investigation into the causes of the June 24 partial collapse of the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside, Florida.

The investigation could take years to complete and will seek to understand the technical cause of the building’s failure so the agency can, if it is deemed necessary, make recommendations for specific standard, code, and practice improvement in building design.
