Al-Marsad Newspaper: Engineering expert Saud Al-Dalbhi explained the reasons for the inclination of a hotel building in Makkah and the chances of its collapse.
He said during his intervention with the “Yahla” program: “The tilt can be due to two reasons. The first is groundwater leakage under the bases, but the architecture is still cohesive, which indicates that the collapse was not partial.” He added that there could be soil or a gap between the two buildings. difference in foundation.
He continued: I expect the level differences and the void between the new and the old architecture is what led to this inclination.
He added that we are against the removal process, except after studying the cost of treatment and removal, indicating that the situation must be studied well, and a decision should be made about treatment, if available, or removal.
