    Gee, did someone pull the concrete floor bracing too early before the concrete fully cured or did someone not use enough braces? The lawyers will be getting very rich very soon. RIP guys.

    That would be scary as all heck , you’d think the whole building was coming down and all you can do is stand there or try to jump out.

    "Officials say it's too early to tell the cause of this collapse." I'm going to go out on a limb, lady.... and say it was probably gravity.

    Horrible reporting as usual. This collapse has nothing to do with the cranes looming above it.

    There’s so much politics in construction. This wasn’t just about who was the cheapest,. This job was likely awarded to a friend or family member of the developer or local politicians. This happens all the time, they likely hired all their buddies. I’m a PM in construction and can tell you, it’s a buddy system to the core. You can bet they cut corners at every possible place. Labor is cheap because it’s cheap labor.

    Construction company owner tried to make more money? Cheaper products, not enough rebar where required? Nobody will notice it's less rebar there? 😋. North East they make more money a $50k plywood, 2x4s glued together house sells for like $300k. 🤣😂.

    Hiring Mexicans isn’t the best for construction.
    The older construction workers like me took pride in their work. Now it’s all about the money and not the quality. This can be proven by looking at all the construction companies that are run off of jobs due to lack of production and not being able to meet contract deadlines or pass inspections.
    This country sold out the experienced, skilled construction workers to save money.
    How’s that working out for ya ?

    We have had a bad drought in Jamaica for the first half of 2019. Then the rains started in September and
    with it came: floods, mosquitoes, overgrown vegetation, crop failure (saturated
    soil), and a disease (fungus/pests). When there was no rain crops died, fires
    broke out, there were water rations and some people had no water at all. It’s a
    fact of life that even blessings come with curses; new house - more cleaning,
    wife - expenses, children - time & energy, etc. However when JESUS blesses,
    it comes with no lack. Yes, we are still in the world and still have woe but
    there is a peace inside that others will not understand.

    Design changes (usually by the owners)causing workers to make decisions on how to accommodate these last minute changes. Not to mention workers cutting corners themselves to get their job done. Dont be so quick to blame the engineers.

    This is happening in america more than ever. The construction industry seems to be in a all time low in america: cheap labor, outdated technologies and materials, underpaid engineers (civil engineers are low paid in comparisson with, for instance, computer scientists so the best talent is not in the construction industry anymore). Nowdays China and muslim countries are leading in the construction industries, with america still debating about the very existence of their infrastructure problems. Time to make a call.
