The city of Sedona plans to hire a third-party forensics team to look into the Aug. 14 collapse of the $1 million dome structure at Posse Grounds Pavilion.

The city of sedona plans to hire a third-party forensic engineer to investigate what caused the dome pavilion at Barbara Antonsen Memorial Park to collapse Aug. 14. Following a determination of the cause, a decision on the future of the project will be made.Assistant to the City Manager Nick Gioello said the third party will be hired in the very near future per the instructions of Sedona City Manager Tim Ernster.

“We’re looking at hiring a third-party forensic engineer to look at the site and investigate the accident and give us an unbiased view of where the problems were and why the thing fell down,” Gioello said.

All progress on the long-standing project ceased following the Aug. 14 collapse. No one was injured as a result of the incident. Seven workers were reported inside the structure when it collapsed, but they were able to flee the area uninjured.

The concrete clamshell structure was designed to reduce noise from the stage during performances.

The general contractor for the project, Tiffany Construction, as well as subcontractors met with city staff immediately following the collapse. A fence is currently located around the rubble of the dome.

    1 Million dollars?! Can we get our money back on this? I dont have a receipt but I sure could use the million to fix other things around the city. Get involved folks! This is our money that paid for this. Does anyone elso out there have a little bit of buyer's remorse?

    How about a story that explains how that 'bubble' apparently made of composite materials is a somehow cement clamshell? It appeared to be an inflated work area cover that workers were working inside of and now it looks like a deflated balloon. Where are the forms for a cement clam shell? The details as conveyed are hard to mesh with the visual observation. Have you not observed? Do you not have such questions? How about a mention of the construction technique that was being employed? (not sure this comment is submitting)
