Struc­tural en­gi­neer

The Compass - - NEWS -

Just as Coombs thought the sit­u­a­tion couldn’t get any worse, Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety re­quested a struc­tural en­gi­neer as­sess the build­ing.

Ap­par­ently this re­quest was much eas­ier said than done.

“ We con­tacted a struc­tural en­gi­neer and he was will­ing to as­sess the build­ing, but he wanted the as­bestos re­moved first,” says Coombs. “ How­ever gov­ern­ment told us be­fore we were al­lowed to re­move the as­bestos the struc­tural en­gi­neer had to go in and do his work. It made no sense at all and was be­yond con­fus­ing.”

As of last week the sit­u­a­tion was still in limbo and Coombs says he feels like he has been hit­ting his head off a brick wall.

“I’m not one bit happy with how this has all turned out. I’m to­tally frus­trated,” he said.
