As a follow up on the subject posting, the precast roof slab components have not been lifted off of the sulphur pit. It turns out that they were in much worse condition than even I expected!
I was not present when the removal took place but they sent me some photographs. One of the 4' by 33' hollow core components actually broke in half. Most lost the 3" of concrete below the hollow cores fell into the sulphur pit. In general it was disastrous. They are very lucky it didn't collapse into the liquid sulphur while they were in opperation.
It's a very good example of how not to carry out preventative maintenance!!!
