VIDEO: WATCH DON WEBB Intimidate Reporters When Asked About Structural Safety at Allegiant Stadium
LAS VEGAS, NV: On Thursday January 16th, 2020, Don Webb met with the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board members to discuss his quarterly progress report.
It would be wonderful if life operated the way it does on an engineer’s CAD (computer-aided design) machine in a nice air-conditioned office
Don Webb continues to mislead the public on the damage that was done to the Stadium when 10 roof trusses were built wrong. According to Don, “It would be wonderful if life operated the way it does on an engineer’s CAD (computer-aided design) machine in a nice air-conditioned office
and everything fits perfectly and all the geometry is precise, but in the real world things don’t always fit,” Webb said. “So when you find out they don’t fit , you try to see if you can adjust things to make it fit." Read Mick Aker's full article here. As a result of "making things fit", in November 2019, the weight of the roof overstressed structural members of the Stadium and broke 8 bolts. These were very important bolts. These bolts attach to roof trusses to the structural members of the Stadium. Webb has consistently downplayed the significance of this event. These tactics that Webb uses are evidence that he has placed "completion" ahead of public safety on his list of priorities. Grand Canyon Development Partners agrees; they forced the project to shut down November of 2019.
Anyone who has built a "dog house" knows that if you mess with the structural members of the dog house, then it won't be as precise as the original blueprint design. You can't add as much weight to the roof as you could if the roof had been built according to the original blueprint designs.
Here is an excerpt from Don Webb's Q&A.
