I thought I'd kick off this thread as a "service to the public" - a bit like Automatic RIAI Registration.
Its intended to out the most dangerous and repetitive mis-certifiers of buildings in the world, not only in Ireland.

This disaster of a relatively simple thing like a suspended ceiling makes me worry about the amazing fornt elevation of his Grand Canal Square theatre, and all those cladding systems turned through 45-and-60 degree angles - will they also fail spectacularly?
