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.

Confidential Reporting

Confidential reporting was developed as ASRS (Aviation Safety Reporting System) by NASA for the Federal Aviation Authority in the USA. This has been operating for over 30 years and as a result of its success, similar schemes have been developed in a number of other countries. In the UK, this is CHIRP (Confidential Reporting Programme for Aviation and Maritime).

CROSS is the first confidential reporting scheme to deal with structures.
