What do you mean? I understand that a certain amount of demolition prep work was done before the collapse, could this explain what you are seeing?
Sorry, missed your reply.
Unless it's an optical illusion the beam looks compressed, deflected. See screen shot. It would take a massive force to bend those beams I imagine.
Bottom flange looks straight but not the top

Gotcha. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I do know that the site suffered from several fires in the last decade or so, maybe there was once a higher level that has long been collapsed? This is a good week after the most recent collapse, which blocked a road and train lines for a bit. Guess the beams could have been cut during before those walls and ceiling were pulled down.

Hi Rose, can I just ask how close is the nearest settlement to that building.
I imagine it's so far out that people had to drive to get to it, or it just relied on passing trade?
There's a few houses nearby, and I think a Playcentre, a pub/cafe, and mainly farms. I'm hoping it will be overcast tomorrow, and I'll go back without the dog, and take a proper wander around. There may even be a school. I was time limited as it was about 28 deg Cent and the dog was over heating .... I left him the car with aircon on to get these. It's about half an hour probably from Waipukarau, which would be the nearest larger town, and maybe 3/4 of an hour from Hastings which is probably a city.

Thanks! Your question sounds like I need to take a third trip down there now. I went a second time because I missed so much the first time...oh boy.
I'm not doing anything. What day do you want to go?

That is the bitch with shooting amazing spaces. Even if we see something we want to shoot, it's too easy to get distracted. When I saw @Harvey Melvin Richard's photos of our shoot, I was bummed I had missed the obvious of going below to shoot the amazing machines. I had planned to!
