The quality assurance agency for the Harmon Tower at MGM Mirage's CityCenter project blamed a communications breakdown for problems in the construction process. Converse Consultants Southwest representatives said during a hearing that they are working with representatives from Nevada's Clark County to improve the inspection process. In January, MGM Mirage said it was eliminating the tower's top 15 floors because it would be too expensive to replace reinforcing steel that was improperly installed. Converse inspectors had failed to document the errors.
