Municipal Center Roof Replacement - Phase 2

The Municipal Center was built in 1991 and, in its 27 years of existence, the municipal roof (which has a life expectancy of 20-25 years) has never been replaced. In a study conducted in January 2017, it was discovered that all three sections of the roof needed replacing. Roof replacement will take place in three phases.

In 2018, the easternmost section of the roof was replaced in advance of the installation of the solar panels on the Municipal Center roof.  

Phase two, which will begin on Monday, April 1, will replace the westernmost section of the roof. Work includes removal and replacement of the existing membrane, insulation and flashing. The entire project is expected to take approximately six weeks, weather depending. 

The final phase of the roof replacement will be completed in 2020.

Current Activity

May 22, 2019: Preliminary roof work is complete. The entire front entrance to the Municipal Center is now open. Crews are performing patch work on the circle drive walk and drive area where granite pavers are failing. Roofing flags will remain in place until final aluminized coating is cured.

Visitors are encouraged to be alert for workers and follow all signage when using the circle drive entrance. 

Timeline

Week One - April 1: Preliminary work is scheduled to begin. Work will include removing the coping pieces from around the edge of the roof and preparing the area to be re-constructed. Coping pieces will be lowered to the ground for storage into the work zone (the circle drive) with the use of a Lull machine.

Week Two - April 8: The roofing contractor, Adler Roofing, will be on site to start demolition of the existing roof. The contractor will use the Lull machine to lower the debris into dumpsters parked by the entrance to the circle drive.

Week Three - April 15: Roof replacement construction is scheduled to begin. Work is expected to take approximately three to four weeks, weather depending.

Impacts to Building Entrances

All entrances to the Municipal Center will remain open and fully accessible during construction. Visitors entering the building through the main entrance should use the identified sidewalk route to enter the building. While the sidewalk to the main entrance of the building will remain open, visitors who require an accessible entrance are encouraged to use the lower-level parking deck for parking and entering the building.

Impacts to Parking

Parking will not be restricted during the project. Visitors will have full access to both levels of the Municipal Center parking garage. While the sidewalk to the main entrance of the building will remain open, visitors who require an accessible entrance are encouraged to use the lower-level parking deck for parking and entering the building. 

Impacts to Travel

Beginning, April 1, the circle drive will be closed to accommodate construction equipment. The circle will remain closed to all traffic until the project is complete.
