Ceiling insulation in old 5 unit in Colorado

My boss has an old unit and it has plaster ceilings and a flat roof. No real way to access the drop ceiling without cutting it.

He said foam would be good but expensive.
I suggested Owens Corning pink blown insulation with a 3 inch hose and drill a hole for pressure. He thinks we would have a lot of holes and patching.

I was thinking trying to cut one hole to let a guy stand on a ladder and blow the insulation then patch the ceiling.

The apartment units are small. Any other ideas? Thanks.

Dense packing flat roofs never works in my opinion. It is not preferred by the building science folks.

Can you demo the interior ceiling?
I don't think he wants to do that. It has a flat roof and that has been redone. I was also thinking about a new ceiling but it would probably be pretty pricey.
