Information:

Eleven precast concrete elements (panels) weighing approximately 100 tonnes and stored in a steel rack on a local construction site collapsed on 9 March 2009. Fortunately there were no people in the vicinity of the rack at the time of the collapse but the elements and the rack struck and damaged a mobile crane on site.

The rack was not designed or tested to determine its safe load capacity and the large number of elements being stored arose from stockpiling as a result of the sequencing of erection.
