King's Education School - Distressing News from New Zealand - Review your Building's Design if in Ring of Fire.

If you are building in the Ring of Fire, Don't ever take the minium bid on construction.  The following photos are a sad reminder of what can happen when you do. 

Rescue workers are seen at the ruined building that housed the King's Education School, following Tuesday's earthquake in the southern New Zealand city of Christchurch February 23, 2011.

This building, King's School recently finished construction was completely destroyed.  Only the stairwell remains.  Older and newer buildings surrounding it were left almost untouch.  King's School had almost no survivers including 23 missing Japanese Students.   I hope there is a full investigation into the firms who built it and those who designed it.
