The engineer swears he did all possible to simplify the design. All I know is the design calls for everything to be done before everything else. We had a site visit with the engineer. We had a site visit with the manager of the concrete supplier. We had a site visit from the pump truck managers. All these site visits so that Murphy does not pay a visit.
