Since Friday , images and videos of the devastating killer Tsunami are all over the internet, newspaper and TV. I have just visited the Operation Blessing International website to get some data for office communication and once again the homepage focused on their relief operation in Japan. My attention was caught to a building which withstand the 8.9M earthquake. I am sure the steel building was built complete with metal cladding. If not of Japan’s advanced construction technology, the damage would be far greater than what they had now.
Being a Civil Engineer by profession, I advised those who are planning to construct your home or any structure to strictly purchase the material specifications and follow the standard work procedure.
