An executive with the company working on its first Texas A&M construction project, an equine facility in College Station, said construction was going well before Saturday's building collapse that injured five workers.

Tom Hansen, senior vice president for Gamma Construction Co., said the injured workers were employed by subcontractor Ramco Erectors Inc. of Houston. He said construction was halted Saturday after the frame of a 300-foot English riding arena collapsed around 11 a.m.

    Happens everywhere bro, not just TAMU. I mean, look at Washington, a lot of politicans are bought and sold everyday as well as backroom political deals. The way of the world these days.

    The company also donated a goodly amount to a PAC to elect members to the Cy-Fair school board. Yep, there is actually a PAC for school board members. The goal was to oust the entrenched conservatives on the board and replace them with more liberal (or moderate?) members. I have to give credit to this to johnbob (elf) for posting a link in KBTX.

    I can't remember a building collapsing before except, oh yeah Reed Arena collapsed during the red iron stage. Also, it would be interesting to see if the employer is withholding taxes on all the people on the site, I notice a similarity in their names[wink]
