NOTICE:  The Resource Center Building roof replacement project will begin Monday, August 10th, 2009.  The contractor's work schedule for this project is from 5:00 AM until noon daily Monday through Friday.  The contractor will park two large mobile cranes at the back and Tulane Avenue side of the building. 

 

The contractor will be placing the tar kettle on the ground in the back of the building due to limited space on the roof and for safety concerns.  This will result in odors around the kettle and the roof periodically for the duration of the new roof project. 

 

Over the next few weeks, there will be noise in the early morning hours as the contractor removes sections of the roof.  The contractor will then install new roofing underlayment material and apply the new roof membrane.  When the contractor applies the new roofing membrane, hot tar will be used to seal the new roof.  After the tar work is complete the contractor will continue installing flashing on the roof. 

 

Every effort will be made to minimize noise during regular work hours.  The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of this calendar year.
