Collapsing of buildings can be prevented with a proper soil test. Clients will spend 50 million naira constructing a home but can't spend 500 thousand naira on soil test.

Try www.fouranchors.org for proper soil test services

97 percent of construction projects in Lagos state are handled by quacks , some of the building owners even chase away the architects and engineers from their projects because they don't pay them and they call in the quacks because they want cheap services, they compromise engr specifications because they wanna save costs , if these acts are not stopped, buildings wld start coming down on minute basis from now

When most landlords see structural/ civil engineers as being expensive, that's the result they get. Structural failure...
My heart to those trapped inside the building
