30 Construction Fails That Are Unbelievably Stupid – Part1

As you scroll through these ridiculous construction fails we can guarantee the same thoughts will cross your minds as they did ours…. what on earth were these people thinking? Surely if they made a mistake during building they would have to start over again and get it right? You would think so, wouldn’t you? The problem with all of these poorly designed places is the fact that they have simply been left there instead of corrected, changed or removed all together. All of them are pointless and unable to serve their purpose properly, so what’s the point of leaving them there?! We think the answer to that question is simply to entertain people!

Funny Construction Fails

Whilst this seems funny at a first glance, low down ATM’s actually make a lot of sense for people in wheelchairs and well, short people!

A completely useless balcony. Who wouldn’t want one?

white balcony black railings no access

We’re receiving mixed messages here. The benches say ‘come take a seat’ whilst the fencing screams ‘do not come near’!

benches on grass fenced off by railings

If you’re going to put a pole in the middle of a pathway, make it a bold color so it stands out! We can imagine this place has had its fair share of accidents.

On this occasion we would most certainly not be taking the leap of faith!

This surveillance equipment looks like a worthwhile investment!

security camera blocked by tv screen

We would love to know the thought process behind this! Was it an accident or intentional?

Close enough!

You must reach level 100 of life to be able to enter this door…

…and this one is level 200.

We can just imagine the amount of people who have been at the bottom of these steps waiting to escalate! Misleading indeed

Thank goodness for this illuminated sign, we would be lost for an exit otherwise!

Let’s hope everyone pays attention to where they’re walking!

gate fencing in the middle of pathway access way over mud

We really want to know what’s behind this door, considering no one can open it…

Well, that’s the problem solved, sort of.

Design Fails

This payphone likes you to put some effort in to reap its rewards. So, you better grab a friend and work together to gain some height!

Taking ‘mind the step’ to a whole new level.

Living life dangerously can be fun in certain ways, but this is not one of them!

We always do wonder what the justification was for construction fails like this. Things that serve no purpose whatsoever. Did someone just need the practice?

random ramp and steps in middle of no where

Beware of the random and confusing lane change!

This barrier must be such a useful deterrent. It looks so secure and intimidating!

We call this feature ‘the slide of serious injury’. To be used with extreme caution!

There must be a secret door. All our years of playing video games leads to this conclusion.

There’s wacky, and then there’s this…

back to front door handle and random outdoor steps

Squeeze! You can do it!

stairway with tiny access gap

Once at the top of the stairs, one must climb over the railing. This was put into place for exercise purposes. A little bit of extra effort here and there really adds up!

steps the are blocked off at the top and sides with metal railings

Some would say this toilet fits perfectly!

Sometimes you’d rather carry out a mediocre ‘solution’ than go through all the effort of changing something!

Can you imagine needing to use the facilities and seeing this?

‘Some very minor light disturbance, you’ll hardly notice a thing!’
