I looked at the pictures........

 

Last three or more floors have no outside support........

 

Can't do floors like that........

 

If it was gonna be pre-cast on the outside the floors needed to be tied in.......

 

Some heads will roll.............................

Just watched the crane implosion live, I don’t think it really made the site any safer. What a debacle.

I would have done a failed implosion for much less.
