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.
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.
