As we learned this past weekend in Oakland, California, just because a building appears to be structurally sound doesn’t mean that things can’t change in the blink of an eye.
Some of this country’s oldest buildings have stayed open for years thanks to full restorations and renovations that bring them back to their former glory. Not all restoration projects are successful, however, and even the smallest bit of damage can put people’s lives at risk.
Midway through major renovations, this 100-year-old apartment building in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, collapsed on the afternoon of Friday, December 2.
