I dont know but I doubt they would spend millions of dollars on something like that just to have it sink...besides, if you go into it, on any of the upper floors, you will notice the commectors im the floor which help stabilize the building in the event of a majormcatastrophe. Its really quitemnice.
truth b told....

I worked on it for over 2 years and yes it has sank. That's why a lot of windows were replaced before any of the staff were moved in because after all the beds and computers and stuff were moved in the dumb ass company the hospital hired who's dumbass engineers forgot to account the weight of everything and it sank over a foot into the ground...the reason the floor isn't solid going from the bed tower to the spine is because, yes, in case of a TREMOR it will be able to shift the weight back and forth because the stupid ass design wasn't meant for an earthquake and will not withstand to something higher than 4.0 magnitude. Maybe next time the stupid ass hospital board will think twice before spending almost a billion dollars to set a hospital that had to have tons and tons of dirt and rock brought in to get out of a flood plain even though if it floods it will still go under the water.
