Extraordinary examples of construction calamities
Humans have been building for more than 10,000 years; we’re engineering experts and yet, every year, tales emerge of construction calamities from all over the world. Massive Engineering Mistakes examines everything from the extraordinary to the ridiculous, to uncover the epic fails and near misses that engineers would rather not talk about. With access to design teams, eyewitnesses, and a panel of experts, we analyse what went wrong with each building blunder, investigate why they went undiscovered and reveal just how engineers are trying to fix them today.
In series five, amongst other stories from around the globe, we investigate what brought a mammoth crane crashing to Earth
in New York City and examine the collapse of scaffolding on a towering bridge construction in Spain. Meanwhile, In Australia, explosives fail to bring down a supersize silo, and why did an epic bridge fail in Austria’s capital, Vienna? From a whistling tower in Manchester, UK, to a sinking structure in Berlin, we uncover the engineering that created the chaos.
