    Thankfully, sounds like everyone should live.

    I wonder how long this will delay things and who's at fault and how long it will take to determine that (and fight it thru court)

    I'll assume its either:

    A) Poor structural design
    B) Poor strucutral elements (ie the steel put up was not as strong for one reason or another)
    C) Poor construction methods

    and my guess is that in the end, the answer is C.

    The thread title is a bit misleading. The whole casino didn't collapse. A 30 x 30 foot section of the second floor broke loose at one corner, and several workers were hurt, but none were seriously injured. It's not a disaster.

    I wonder if this is all related to a similar construction collapse at the casino being built up in Cleveland?

    Pay attention to the open sky

    seeing a little more, both areas were 60'x60' spans, kind of makes me wonder that it was the engineering design.

    I'm far from an expert, but have seen enough sets of structural drawings/buildings going up that it would appear from a picture taken 100+ feet away that the problem lies in the connection point b/w the support girder (holding the floor up) and the vertical beam. Design or construction method/error, I don't know.

    Unacceptable. Was this in the report? No.

    Glad all injured look to recover.
