Pillar problems at bank building

Steel reinforcements used in a construction refurbishment project may have failed and caused a support pillar at the10-story Bank of America building at 625 North Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach to sink slightly. The shift prompted a brief ban on entry into the building. The city asked contractor McBride Resources and Associates to use thicker steel as it caries out its repairs.
