City Leaders Looking At Events Center Paneling

City Leaders Looking At Events Center Paneling
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Denny Sanford PREMIER Center is just a few months away from opening its doors, but pieces of its siding are getting some extra attention. A City Council member brought up concerns about parts of the metal paneling that are not laying flat.  Over the phone, Council member Rex Rolfing said some of his constituents pointed out the issue. If you look closely at the stainless steel paneling on the round part building, you will see some of the ends are apparently popping out.

"Essentially, (you) have a piece of metal put on a curved portion, and then where they join together, we're seeing some deflection," Cotter said.

Cotter said the City has expressed concerns to the construction company and the architects.  At this point, they are still figuring out what they will need to do to fix the paneling on the multi-million dollar building. Cotter stressed that the issue does not hurt the structure of the building. This is merely a cosmetic issue.

"They've been designed to sustatin a 90 mile per hour wind, and so, again, just like every element of this building, whether it's an interior element, or the exterior. Any concern we have as the owner, we are here to protect the taxpayer dollars," Cotter said.

Rolfing said he is not worried, and said he is confident the problem will be taken care of. At this point, Cotter doesn't expect the paneling to cause any major delays, or affect the budget. 

"We're in, I'd say, the final quarter. We're excited to get the building done and open to the fans," Cotter said.

Cotter also said there is no word on how much this could cost to fix, how long the process could take.
