726 Combustible insulation in rainscreen cladding

Whilst walking past a tall residential building being constructed in the UK, a reporter observed the facade build-up to consist of combustible insulation with a rainscreen cladding.

736 Building extension causes snow drifting failure

The reporter feels that structural engineers are failing to realise the implications of creating a valley or an upstand and are failing to check existing structural elements including foundations for the increased load.

Current matters
under consideration


  • Quality of construction
  • Fire in buildings
  • Quality of supervision on site
  • Use of Resident Engineers
  • Robustness
  • Weather damage to buildings

Reports on these subjects are sought, as well as on any other concerns.

CROSS (Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety)

CROSS depends on individuals and firms participating by sending reports of their experiences and concerns on structural safety in confidence to CROSS.

Reports submitted to CROSS are completely confidential and neither personal details nor information that could be used to identify a project or product are seen by anyone other than the Delegated Persons as detailed on our People page.

Weather Damage Reports

Severe weather events have caused extensive damage and disruption to infrastructure and buildings with serious consequences for many.

Creating a record of damage to buildings and structures has the support of MHCLG (Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government) and other government agencies in the UK to help formulate long term strategies for the Building Regulations.

The CROSS system will be used for collecting and processing information on weather damage. Visit our What To Report page for more information or submit a report on weather damage.
