Dealers generally agree that an antique piece is at least years old, while a collectible is less than years old. The distinction is blurred, however, because some sought-after collectibles command higher prices than older and more valuable antiques. An astute antiques and collectibles dealer markets merchandise with a recognized antique value, or that boasts a number of dedicated collectibles fans. Product knowledge, creative marketing techniques and attention to customers help develop a successful business.
But nevertheless, we are very much concerned [about] this accident.
In the early hours of Monday morning, June 25 — and despite discovering signs of life — rescue work was suspended due to the danger of additional concrete falling on the potential survivors and the HUSAR rescuers. Lucie Aylwin, 37, worked just once a week at the lottery booth, earning extra money for her wedding.
The investigation found that the collapse was caused by a two-stage failure of the welding on a connection, due to extensive corrosion.
The corrosion was caused by improper waterproofing and the placement of a parking lot on the roof, which allowed water, contaminated with road salt which accelerated the corrosion to corrode the structure.
Firstly, the parking lot for the mall was located on the roof of the building without there being sound waterproofing, and secondly the structural inefficiency of the hollow-core slabs HCS which prevented the installation of effective waterproofing later on. John Kadlec of Beta Engineering originally planned the use of 8-inch HCS, which he specified could withstand pounds per square foot, a load which exceeded specifications on all 8-inch HCS.
During the bidding process, the owners were advised by a bidder, Preconthat the specified load could not be handled by the HCS without reinforcements from a composite concrete topping. However, Kadlec advised the owners that the plans called for 8-inch HCS which could withstand the load without reinforcement from topping.
Two different waterproofing systems were proposed to the owner by Harry S. The first system called for a rubberized asphalt membrane to be applied over the non-composite concrete topping, while the second one called for no membrane, and simply controlling leaks with a polyurethane sealant.
HSP argued strongly for the second option, and convinced the owner to install the second system. The report called this system "intrinsically flawed", and leaks were noticed immediately after construction.
Inthe owners contracted Trow to investigate the chronic leaking and find a solution. Two options were provided, but upon consulting with Coreslab, it was determined that neither plan could go forward due to the HCS not being able to support additional loads.
The corrosion was eventually so severe that the weld on a connection failed, resulting in the collapse. The inquiry also found that while Perizzolo died almost instantly, Aylwin may have survived for up to 39 hours after the collapse, and may have been found alive if HUSAR had not suspended its rescue operations.
The province and the National Fire Protection Association denounced the cuts. Estimates suggest people worked at the mall or hotel. Marieboth over kilometres away by road; residents were said to be fielding requests from others for essentials like clothing, not readily available without the mall.
