SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The city of Sioux Falls has hired a design firm to look into an issue with the metal paneling on the exterior of the Denny Sanford Premier Center.

The Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1im8PRk ) reports that the flat horizontal metal panels are bulging where they join along the curved face of the building.

The city borrowed $115 million to build the facility that will host hockey, football, basketball, rodeos and concerts. Sanford Health contributed $2 million for an electronic scoreboard.

The newspaper reports the city expects a report from the design firm by early July. The firm is to analyze how the panels were installed and specifications from the city’s design and bidding process.

Mayor Mike Huether says officials will make sure that the city gets its money’s worth.
