    The false ceiling at the void deck of Block 721 in Woodlands Circle had collapsed at around 5 pm yesterday (Jul 15). There were no reports of injuries.

    One resident who prefers not to be named told Observer+ that the ceiling collapsed without warning after a heavy storm.

    “Imagine if there were kids playing around the area”, she said.

    The matter is currently under investigation.

    A similar incident happened on October 18 last year when a false ceiling at the void deck of Block 807, Tampines Avenue 4, collapsed. The cause was related to a termite infestation which had attacked the wooden frame that held up the false ceiling, causing it to give way.

    Parts of housing blocks have fallen off on at least three occasions over a period of two months late last year, prompting at least one Member of Parliament to ask for more to be done to ensure the integrity of old housing blocks.

    woodframe and sheetboard not conducive for outdoor facades in equatorial sinkapore. cali warm and dry climate is ok, but not hot and moist tropical climate like in a steam bath. reinforced concrete is still the best for sg.

    i see concrete in the real ceiling, which means there's hope as the fake ceiling (pretenders) rots away giving way to solid robust material (trusted core). ;)
