Sioux Falls Events Center Siding, getting worse

I decided to take a ride to the Denty today to inspect the siding, it is getting worse (as we expected). As you can see from my pictures, a greasy substance it leaking from the siding. This is likely from a cheap caulk used, but what is more troubling isn’t the black stains, it is that this is leaking. Why? Most likely water is seeping from behind the siding causing the cheap caulk to stream down the building which means underneath there is major water damage.

They’re the tears of our time. Once we had only the loss of a major pawn shop and the hopeless dreams of high speed trains coming to Brandon and Sioux Falls. But now, we have become a town of floods, tornadoes, pandemic hotspots, and riots with only a Bunker Ramp, or a 26th Street bridge to somewhere, and a TIF for a state to show for. You would cry too. #TrulyOneSiouxFalls

Expensive repair on something with no revenue or present practical use. Thankyou Mr. Huether.

Really? I wonder who would know something about that?

Looks like mildew to me.

More likely is that the heat build up behind the panels is “melting” the stuff. Actually, it’s creating a chemical reaction that is causing the stuff to separate out into its component parts, one of which is no doubt some sort of petroleum extract (oil). That liquidy petroleum substance would run down the inside of the panels itself.

Terry, do tell, do tell.

I gave a council presentation on the siding because Huether had Bruce arrested just before the meeting. It’s inferior improperly secured cheap material not meant for this application. Supposedly, the contractor settled with the city and Huether spent it on another big project failure.

What a dumpy, cheap looking building. Huether stuck to his financial number on the building but at what cost? It looks like hell and supposedly the engineers and others who worked on it signed a non-disclosure agreement so they can’t spill the beans publicly on all the corners cut and cheap materials used. Snake oil Huether was so proud of himself about this building. What a charlatan.

It reminds me, too, of the excess goo from my once Creeper Crawlers set.
