It does not invalidate the DAC's requirement (and for that matter the 
PCC's too, amd also due diligence) of having a structural engineers 
report.  The bellahndgers and founders are not structural engineers by 
and large.

When money has been given by donors to a charity it is a tough decision 
for the trustees to pay out £80 of their donations when all other firms 
invited do it for free.
