To mark the anniversary of Grenfell, we look at some engineering catastrophes from around the world that have shown civil engineers where potential gaps in learning might be.

14th June marks the 5th anniversary of the Grenfell fire tragedy.

Part of recovering from a catastrophe such as this is reassuring the community that steps are being taken to prevent it from happening again.

For civil engineers, who help ensure the safety and resilience of our infrastructure, it means learning from these disasters and upgrading skills and knowledge accordingly via continued professional development (CPD).
