Collapse of the New 8 Million Dollars Pool

Collapse of the New 8 Million Dollars Pool

A new building of the swimming pool complex, that is due for putting into service in August 2013, cracked at night in Krasnodar. The water pressure broke part of the building wall and the fence. The cost of the project – 250 million rubles (about eight million dollars).

  1. I am surprised there wasnt one car with a camera driving by when that happened. Id love to see the video of the water rushing out.

  2. the engineer must have forgotten to calculate for the weight of the water! it hardly looks like it would have stood empty, let alone with water at 8 lbs per gallon.

  3. Water pity. The architect’s career is washed up. Maybe he he should have pooled his talent with others. But now his reputation is tanked. But it’s a fluid situation. Soon it will all be water under the bridge. Then his career will be going swimmingly well again.

  4. How funny… they’ve made the pool’s floor 30 cms thick and placed the pilars 5 meters from each one.

    I’m not an engineer, but the failure here it’s astonishing.

  5. my guess: the architects were good, but some builders decided, that some of the metal bars and cement is better spend on their house or dacha.
