Dear Sefians,

I am attaching herewith an interesting article titled above, authored by Mr. Sean Brady, a Forensic Structural Engineer, Brisbane, Australia, and published in the February 2014 issue of  'The Structural Engineer', Journal of The Institution of Structural Engineers, London.

It is a very interesting article showing high professional ethics of Mr. William LeMessurier, one of North America's most respected high-rise engineers.  Indeed it requires a lot of courage to accept one's mistake and then do whatever was needed to stabilize the 280m high, 59 storey building.  We all should appreciate and applaud him for his moral courage in rectifying the mistake.  Please read the article as it is a guide for all of us.  (The article is reproduced here with the permission of the 'The Structural Engineer' Journal).

With best wishes,
