Dear Sujani,

There are many causes of failure of building after construction; some of them are as under.
1.    Failure of foundation:- 
                    There are many causes of failure of foundation such as:-
  •  Defective construction.
  • Low bearing capacity
  • Inadequate design
  • Due to change in moisture shrinkage or swelling affects on the clay under foundation.
  • Compression of a soft layer in the ground as a result of the applied foundation loads
  • Soil softening
  • Due to heavy frost.
  • Back filling not done properly 
  • Due to change in groundwater level.
  • Erosion caused by flood or heavy wind pressure.
  • Vibration from nearby construction
  • Hydrostatic Pressure
2.    Failure of structural member i.e. RCC Column, Brick wall etc. These failures occur due to weak mix, faulty design, using salty water and careless in construction.
Failure of structural member i.e. RCC beams and slab is one of the major cause.

Regards
S.L.Gupta
