The City of Sioux Falls Has Asked That the PREMIER Center Siding Report Be Completed and Released This Week

An independent firm, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., conducted their field observations of the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center siding on December 12 and 13, 2017, and is working to complete the building enclosure report. The City of Sioux Falls has asked Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc. to complete the report this week if possible. The City also requested the completed report be sent simultaneously to Purchasing Manager Scott Rust and City Clerk Tom Greco.

Mayor Mike Huether and Director of Public Works Mark Cotter will host a news conference to formally announce the results as soon as possible after receipt of the building enclosure report. City Council Leadership will also be invited to participate in the news conference.

In October 2017, the City of Sioux Falls issued a request for proposals for an independent review of the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center’s IMETCO CF-12 exterior metal wall panel system for functionality and structural soundness. In addition to a review of the exterior metal wall panel system, the consultant also reviewed the air and moisture barrier system behind the metal wall panel system. Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc., a Chicago-based company with extensive knowledge and experience in building enclosure systems, was chosen to complete the review.
