ATI says that the official French inquiry blamed weak concrete in the roof which allowed the metal braces holding up the roof to slip through.

I'm surprised the French haven't blamed Continental (or any other US carrier) for the collapse!  Yeah sure

I say it was a combination of design and technique. This design required extreme care. The bottom portion had to be built gradually and needed proper curing time before it could suppot any weight. I wish I was privy to the report. Other reports here on A.net infer that the contractors were under pressure to complete the work by a specific date.

Who applied that pressure? I bet it was the folks running CDG!

Terminal 2E has re-opened PARTIALLY, on the 17th of August, checking in flights only to Istanbul (IST) and Casablanca (CMN). Passengers are checked in and then board buses and are brought to the aircraft parked nearby, still on a hard stand.

The lounge remains closed.
Bonjour Chef!
