Champlain Towers Collapse - Part II

The Blame Game

On the morning of June 24, 2021, Champlain Tower South, a 13-story oceanfront condominium in south Florida, collapsed.  So far, rescue crews working around the clock have recovered 97 bodies from the rubble.  At least a dozen residents still remain unaccounted for as recovery efforts continue.In the last episode of The Blame Game, we spoke with an architect to discuss why this unspeakable tragedy occurred and who, if anyone, was to blame, such as the structural engineer who had found major structural damage in the building following an inspection two-and-half years ago, the architect who had designed the building, and even geotechnical issues which may have compromised the foundation of the building.  

In this episode of The Blame Game, we turn our attention to the condominium’s board of directors which had been warned about the building’s structural issues but never got around to making the necessary repairs. And to help us better understand the role of the condominium’s board of directors and its arguable culpability in the Champlin Tower building collapse, we turn to  Mark Foley of the Folson Group, financial consultants for residential condominiums and cooperatives.
