The Grenfell Tower Tragedy – Could it Happen  Here?

Could  the AEC activities that contributed to Grenfell occur in the US?

Presenter:  Christopher Bucci, MSCE, PE,

This course will explore the publicly available facts related to what happened at Grenfell Tower in London, England, during the fire in 2017, the AEC contributing activities during the renovation that preceded the fire, and the parallels to AEC activities that commonly occur on North American projects that could contribute to a similar outcome here in the U.S.

Upon completion of this program, attendees should:

- Have an understanding of the events of June 14, 2017 at Grenfell Tower.
- Gain a familiarity with UK fire standards and their relationship to US fire standards.
- Recognize the AEC activities that contributed to the Grenfell Tower fire.
