Lao Tsu

When virtue is lost, benevolence appears, when benevolence is lost, right conduct appears, when right conduct is lost, expediency appears. Expediency is the mere shadow of right and truth; it is the beginning of disorder.

3000 years and this has not changed.

We recommended that the foundation be placed on unfrozen ground, and a frost free condition be maintained; in addition, that good engineering and construction practices be followed.

They allowed the foundation to freeze. They built a tall form, and poured the concrete without the benefit of cleaning the form, heat, vibration to the bottom and segregation protection. Then had concerns of freezing, as well as possible snow melt out, segregation, void, and obvious signs of no vibration.

Now they have to chip and redo piecemeal, and they still do not want to heat.

So what is the next step?
