First step in events center design process

Posted: Updated:

The City of Sioux Falls takes the first step in the design process for the new events center.

On Wednesday American Engineering Testing began soil boring out at the future construction site.

Assistant City Engineer Shannon VerHey says they will bore into the ground in about 100 different spots out here.  Then they'll test the soil and the rock elevation underneath.  VerHey says, "that's gonna allow us to develop and design the foundation for the building and for us that's very important, the foundation is gonna carry the entire weight of the events center."

According to VerHey, after the city receives the results from the borings, they will pass those along to their architect and structural engineer, who will then develop a plan for the foundation.
