SYNOPSIS

Collapse in building is regarded as the sudden fall in walls after pulling or breaking apart and which has indeed played a greater, but negative role in the society such as, rendering a number of people homeless, loss of lives and properties, prevent flow of income to the property owners and ultimately reducing the standard of living of the people. Thus, collapse in building is an hazardous occurence that should be well monitored and managed so as to prevent individuals and cooperate bodies from falling a victim.

         The project work will be making references to the recent instance of collapse which occurred within Ilorin metropolis, including collapse of two-storey building along Coca-cola road, off Unity road, Ilorin and also one of the hostel buildings of the Deeper Life Bible Church Camp Ground at Eyenkorin during the church’s yearly Easter retreat. Finally, the research work will try to fish out some eminent causes and problems of this great danger and make viable and workable recommendations to curb the danger.
