Causes and Origins Report

City releases study by SOCOTEC Engineering and White Birch Group LLC

September 7, 2023 – The City of Davenport has announced the completion of the Causes and Origins report initiated upon the partial collapse at 324 Main Street. The findings come after a months-long investigation by SOCOTEC Engineering and White Birch Group LLC, the consultant who responded to the Surfside, Florida condominiums collapse in 2021. 

“Since the day of the partial collapse at 324 Main Street, we have been laser-focused on identifying the causes of this tragic incident,” said Mayor Mike Matson. “We engaged the services of the consultants who responded to the Surfside condominiums collapse in 2021, and we promised the public we would share their findings. Today, we are following through on that promise. Our hearts and thoughts remain with the families of Ryan, Branden, and Daniel and their loved ones, friends, and neighbors.”
