Neenan will double MES warranty

Statement from the Neenan Company in response to a problem with east wall of gym at the new Meeker Elementary School:
“Neenan has determined the cause of the movement of Meeker Elementary School’s east gym wall. Neenan under-designed the wall system for the required horizontal pressure, which resulted in unforeseen exterior wall movement and failure of the structural connections at the top of the wall. The failure was not due to expansive soils. The Neenan Company has extended our two-year warranty to four years on the project. The wall system has been repaired. We are currently going through the state-permitting process to re-open the gym.”
