    • FIRST HAND INSIDER INFO - Why You Should STAY AWAY From City Center In Las Vegas "I wouldn't want to be there during and earthquake," says Demetrius, a disabled construction worker who worked on the City Center project on the Las Vegas Strip. WOE TO THOSE WHO LIVE AND WORK AT CITY CENTER, LAS VEGAS! Being a hitchhiker, I got to hear about all kinds of things going on, and the inside information about various events and happenings. Recently, while I was hitchhiking from Las Vegas to Phoenix this Spring, a former construction worker named Demetrius, who is now disabled and lives with excruciating back pain, and who had worked on the City Center project as a crew boss, told me about the serious construction deficiencies that he discovered that occurred on the structural concrete work there. This disabled construction worker, who had worked for 4 years on the City Center project told me that there were serious problems with the steel rebar inside the support columns, places where there were no rebar headers installed in some places, and of having to cut out forms to remediate this problem. City inspectors robo-signed the inspection forms without even going out to the construction site to even inspect the deficiencies created by the concrete-pouring crews who were in competition with each other in trying to pour as much concrete as fast as possible without completing the rebar work inside earlier concrete pours within the structural support columns. One City Center tower is already condemned, and is slated for demolition there at City Center due to the instabilities created in the structural columns by this worker stating to me that forms were cut out in attempts to remedy this serious problem. The instabilities crated by this caused the engineers to stop construction at the 23rd floor on plans to build this tower up to 52 floors. Currently this tower is used for storage purposes only. The Veer Towers at City Center were also affected by the same shoddy construction its concrete support columns. Due to instabilities created by missing rebar headers, and non-existent Las Vegas city construction code inspection, the engineers has double columns built in the towers in some places after x-ray inspection revealed these serious deficiencies. The Veer Towers are in danger of collapse during an earthquake in the analysis
    • of this disabled construction worker who helped build them at City Center.
