Prof. Adebar speaks with Roundhouse Radio about vulnerability of some new condo buildings in Vancouver
Professor and Head of Civil Engineering Perry Adebar spoke to Roundhouse Radio about how new condos may be uninhabitable after a major earthquake. “The most serious threat after a significant earthquake is that a large part of our city won’t be habitable,” said Prof. Adebar, noting that the risk is heightened with striking, “irregular” new buildings.
