EVENING LECTURE

Rana Plaza: A Catalyst for Change

Structural Safety Assessments of Textile Factory Buildings in Bangladesh

 

 

The sudden collapse of the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh in April 2013 killing 1,132 workers forced the global garment industry to question the true cost of clothing. As a result, Arup was approached to develop a methodology which could be used to assess factory buildings and be applied to a large number of factories over a short period of time. Over 2000 factories have been assessed to date, with Arup undertaking 600 of those.

In this lecture, Aidan Madden and Billy Allen of Arup will outline the challenges faced in setting up and implementing the methodology and give details of their experiences both on the engineering and cultural aspects of working on such a project.
