  1. “Hard Rock”? More like “Jello”.🤔 Glad this happened NOW and not at the grand opening, full of people!😰

  2. Was that union or non-union labor?

  3. seems US civil engineering capabilities has devolved to 3rd World status lately .. buildings & bridges collapsing everywhere .. horrible designs and construction methods.

  4. Well this will be the talk of the town next week during the national concrete structural conference in cicncinnati.

  5. OSHA s coming! Make sure hards hats on an safety glasses! An hide them two pronge exstention cords in the lock box!

  6. My highly calibrated Fire Chiefs Eyes can see building go boom.

  7. Rushing concrete pours to move to the next floor. Post below details a story from a few years back with similar outcome from rushing concrete pours. Someone is definitely going to jail. Prayers for the families of everyone involved.

  8. Non Union Illegal immigrant work force

  9. blue prints specifications lost in translation.


  11. Fatigue failure? Imagine if this place were packed with people dozens dead hundreds wounded.

  12. Imagine being the guys that put alllll that work in and now it will have to demolished just to start over again. Well that won’t be them but some qualified will be.

  13. Well it sure looks like Hard Rock Hotel

  14. Re: John Adams below…Similar accident occurred in northern Virginia a number of years ago. When the investigation was finally concluded it was determined that the project managers were rushing the pours. Finally an upper level let go and the floors underneath all pancaked. A number of workers were killed.

  15. Wow. Drones are VERY useful for this kind of data !

  16. I don't believe it was an "uncured" concrete failure as many are saying. This building is clearly a steel structure with a cold formed metal framing facade (the CFMF could be structural as well as it appears to be infill framing and not balloon or bypass). The only concrete is the floor decks which would be either poured on metal decking or precast (which would be cured before delivery). This is a steel failure, not a concrete failure.

  17. How about a round of applause for those cheap laborers. Thank you for your astonishing contribution to a once great labor force.

  18. Someone better go to prison for this.

  19. Concrete is so toxic to make and expensive; so now it all goes to fill up a land fill. What a colossal waste!

  20. "There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person's lawful prey. It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."

  21. Apparently, it's not hard enough

  22. Better now than after it's finished with people inside. Heads are gonna roll.
