In order to prevent the collapse of any structure, we first need to have a proper analysis of the various loads, stresses, deflections, etc. in the structure and design it accordingly. We need to check and determine the bearing capacity of the soil in which the structure is to be constructed and do the necessary ground improvement methods, then we need to provide the proper foundation so that differential settlement will not occur in the future. Proper dimensions of beams, slabs, shear walls, etc. should be taken accordingly. Proper quality and quantity of materials should be used. The design of the structure should be according to the various codes provided. We need to also take in mind the neighborhood of the construction area so that proper standards can be adopted.
