How do you eat the elephant? One piece at a time.

This entire adventure is going to be a very interesting engineering case study for future students. I hope the project managers are recording everything. The Halifax solution if you will, if this type of thing ever happens again.

It'd be both very exciting and very nerve-wracking to be the team working on this one!

I'm curious about the damage to the slab. Does anyone know if that requires the whole slab to be removed and re-poured, or can they cut back just part of it?

Slowly/surely, the crane is being removed from the site:

South Park Street has reopened along with Victoria Park. A mobile crane is still blocking off Clyde Street. The localized state of emergency has been lifted.

I think 'topping out ' was the reason for the delay in removing the crane. Cement as far as I have researched needs 28 Days to properly harden and the Hurricane happened shortly after the topping out happened with softer Cement.
I imagine, but do not know, that the Crane removal folks were waiting for the Cement on the top floors to help the process by slowly getting harder as the days went by. More support literally. The photos released by the province clearly showed the Cement vertical supports as part of the damaged upper floors. I submit to more experienced commenters if I am wrong.
