This article describes, based on the failure of a public utility building structure, the issues related to the destructive impact of vibrations on the ground in connection with the load-bearing structure of the facility. An external source of wave propagation was identified, located in the immediate vicinity of the analyzed building. Additionally, errors in the interpretation of the behavior of the structure during its operation were presented by performing ineffective construction works related to the attempt to strengthen the ground on which the school sports hall was directly erected. On the basis of the analysis of archival materials and additional tests, the necessary scope of repair works necessary to be performed on the site was determined, along with guidelines for the implementation of the diaphragm in the form of a ground vibro-isolating screen, aimed at minimizing the impact of parasiteismic impacts on the public building.
