In Kinoo, A Building Under Construction Collapses And Leans on Another

Kiambu: 5-storey building collapses in Regen

A building under construction in Nairobi County's Kinoo area has collapsed. The building collapsed and leaned on another finished building on Sunday, according to pictures obtained by the Star. Officials were seen in the area, attempting to assess the extent of the damage.

The Nairobi county government approved the building, according to a billboard on the site.

Residents were taken aback when they heard the earth-tremor-like sound.

"I was driving home when my wife called to tell me that a building had collapsed. So I rushed home, and thankfully there were no casualties "a local stated

The five-story building caved in around 11.30 p.m., according to tenants in neighboring buildings.

Nobody was inside the building when it disintegrated.

A five-story residential building under construction in Kinoo collapsed six months ago.

According to the residents, the problem began when the caretaker noticed cracks and notified the owner.

To prevent buildings from collapsing, quantity surveyors urged developers to work with certified professionals.

According to the Kenya Institute of Quantity Surveyors, the leaning five-story building in Kinoo, Kiambu, and the collapse in Gachie could have been avoided with strict compliance.

Professionals are expected to carry out their duties diligently and without negligence, they said.
