Project Overview: 

The project will remove the existing EPDM roof systems, wet or damaged insulation and all discovered damaged metal and historic wood decking from the four structures. 3 of the 4 buildings were constructed in 1941, with their existing roofs installed in 1995, while the 4th was built in 1998. The roofs have several openings, and non-performing flashing and coping. There are active leaks in several areas of the EPDM roofing, with ponding water, deteriorated membrane and poor underlying insulation. There are several instances of stone veneer suffering water damage below the metal coping. It is no longer adequately attached, resulting in a safety risk from falling material unless it is reattached, repointed and sealed. The project will construct a new modified bitumen roof system for all 4 buildings with suitable substrate, insulation, metal perimeter, flashing and trim, wood nailers and blocking, deck repair where required, and address all other roofing components of coping, scuppers, collector heads, roof drains, downspouts and other items, for a complete watertight, warranted system.  This includes repairing all necessary trim, flashing, counterflashing and termination points. Project also includes repair or replacement of damaged interior items, such as gypsum board or plaster walls and ceilings, floor coverings, light fixtures and ceiling tiles, and pipe wrap and addresses mold removal as needed. Project addresses exterior repairs to the stone veneer, with cleaning, tuck-pointing, caulking and resealing, replacement of unserviceable flues and vents, recommended actions to lintels and openings as needed or other recommended actions. Openings in poor condition will be corrected. Designer shall furnish engineering data, perform explorations as needed, complete design computations, furnish drawings and technical specifications, and provide cost estimates in support of this project. Designer shall follow all aspects of the State Building Commission’s Designer’s Manual in the execution of this project.
