Description:
With the rescue operation still underway, a decision was made by the coroner to establish an expert techical committee. Their task was to ensure that as much information as possible was preserved, to observe and record what facts there were on site and to maintain an open mind as to the cause of the accident.

The committee consisted of five professionals from the fields of engineering, metallurgy, building and chemistry. It was not the role of the committee to suggest what caused the collapse, but they did make recommendations as to how this may be investigated. The members also testified to the royal commission.
