                                                                             ABSTRACT
Many recent collapse of building occurred both during construction and following occupancy. Such failures have received professional and public attention due to the major losses of life and property. Five recommendations resulting from the Engineering Foundations Conference “Building Structural Failures – their cause and prevention”. The recommendations addresses structural integrity, life safety insurance, peer review, definition and assignment of responsibility, and unified risk insurance. The nature and magnitude of the problem, the design process, the construction process, legal implications and the regulatory process are covered.
On this fact, This research was fashion on how to prevent and deal with collapse causes in building. The method used in sourcing the material used for the collection of data was orally interview with 30 professionals in the research field, e.g. builders, architects, quantity surveyor, structural engineers etc. the answers received was presented and analyzed using statistical demographical tools. This research concludes that, foundation failure and faulty design among others are major causes of collapse in building. The research recommend that thorough inspection of sites should be done by professionals, before, during and after construction. client should engage professional and avoid quacks, Government on its own part should enforce policy on construction activity in the study area.
