Dislodged tiles fall from 4th storey unit at condominium in East Coast

Dislodged tiles fell from a fourth-storey unit at a condominium in East Coast on Thursday afternoon. Fortunately no one was injured.

The tiles were from a window cladding at “The Summit” along Upper East Coast Road.

Investigations by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) showed that the timber frame and tiles at a fourth storey unit had been dislodged.

The BCA instructed the condo’s manager to engage a professional engineer to oversee repairs and conduct an inspection of the other units.

Residents said this is the first time such an incident has happened at the 15-year-old condo, which has 242 units.
