Loose Screws

If the visual inspection had shown a problem, Dozer says the team was prepared to do whatever was necessary to fix the problem.

"We would rip apart the building and look for everything we could find."

The visual inspection on which Dozer bases his promise for aggressive action, however, falls short of what Cook, the team's own construction manager, John Wasson, and Geiger Engineers initially recommended to do to alleviate concerns about the Dywidag connections.

All three recommended that the Dywidag connections be physically inspected to see if any nuts were loose.

So far, no one has placed a wrench to a single Dywidag nut and tried to it give a twist.
