Been there - done that!

I would image you have a crew taking out the crete and they probably grind/recyle the old. All that money at one time being taken out.

In my climate, i do take out a few patio's due to cracking etc. I have yet to tear out a paver patio/walk/drive due to cracking.

Can't wait to see the 'after' pictures!

As I read your stats for the job, I was figuring that the pattern was something simple!

So what did you to to insure that the pattern met up properly as you made your way around the circle. Around a pool I always run a ton of lines. It doesn't look like you could run a ton of string lines on that job.

I assume you subbed out the concrete removal/excavation. It had to be near 250 yards excavated if there is a 12 inch base.
