SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The city of Sioux Falls has reached a $1 million settlement with Denny Sanford Premier Center contractors regarding metal siding that’s bulging.

The announcement Friday came two weeks after the city said it was going to sue.

The settlement is between the city and M. A. Mortenson Co., Sink Combs Dethlefs PC, Koch Hazard, M.J. Dalsin Inc. and Innovative Metals Co. Inc.

The $117 million events center opened a year ago. Mayor Mike Huether says resolving the matter of the bulging panels has “been a long and challenging process.”

The city says the bulging panel issue is one of aesthetics. An investigation concluded that the metal siding is structurally sound and doesn’t need replacing. The 20-year finish warranty on the siding remains in effect.
