How much would it likely cost to fix a 3 storey apartment building after it was hit by a runaway truck?

If part of a load bearing wall was knocked out by the truck and some key structural supports plus the main water lines were damaged?

How much would it cost to restore such building to habitability?


How much does it cost to repair cinder block wall severely damaged with a large through hole?

    A lot! 

    How do you expect anybody to remotely quote structural building damage with NO information??? 

    You need to get local contractors to quote the job.  You sound like you're in the UK 🇬🇧.  I'm in the USA 🇺🇸, which further complicates things.

    The answer to all vague questions is 42.

    42 times more than you guess.

    42 times as long to repair.

    So, you want us to render an engineering opinion on a structural integrity of the building and provide you with a cost estimate to repair the damage, sight unseen?  We're not omnipotent, you know.

    I take it you don't have insurance? get a structural engineer to examine the building and go from there.

    What did the contractor say about cost?

    Have you talked to the insurance company?

    If it's insured then you need to call them. If it's not insured then probably more than you can afford.

    I bet it's over $100
