Re: Someone didn't do their job


Ya, not good. I'm sure they will dig until they find out who goofed. Construction in progress is always a difficult time as not all has been attached.

It's amazing that (so far) there has been just one fatality. Just watching that 8-second clip yesterday, one would think there'd be dozens killed.

Very true.

In 1973 an apartment complex under construction in Northern Virginia collapsed killing 14 people and injuring 35 others.

The incident occurred because shoring was being prematurely removed from newly poured concrete between the 22nd and 23rd floors as more concrete was being poured on the 24th floor.

Construction eventually resumed and the building was completed in 1977.

I lived in that building from 1993-1996 and people always asked me if I was nervous because of the collapse. My response was, "It is probably the safest apartment building in the area as no doubt the inspection of the post incident construction was probably made with a microscope."
