MU building inspections show few problems

Structural engineers have finished their inspections of 376 University of Missouri buildings in Columbia.
A 500 page report obtained by KRCG 13 shows there were 18 buildings with structural concerns.
University officials have permanently or temporarily fixed all of the problems.
MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin ordered the inspections in February after a walkway collapse at University Village Apartments killed Columbia fireman Bruce Britt.
MU spokesman Christian Basi said, â??They were able to identify a few areas that needed some issues addressed. We addressed those issues immediately whether it was a temporary fix or whether it was a permanent solution.â??
Structural engineers are still inspecting other properties owned by Mizzou outside of Columbia.
Those properties include any farm buildings and extension office buildings across the state.
Engineers hope to have another report on those properties within the next month.
