This needs to be repaired for health and safety concerns.

Project includes:

  • Site assessments to determine the current overall roof conditions and defects of the roof/building structure.
  • Inspections of the current conditions of the roofing underlayment and tie-in for the steep-slope roof and wall will be needed to determine if these areas are in a watertight condition.

  • Visual fungal contamination and water damage assessment at selected interior locations.

The three employee restrooms would be remodeled to all gender single-use restrooms with showers, toilets, and urinals. The fourth restroom is a public restroom that would be upgraded to accessible codes and new fixtures.

The project will also include the following to bring the facility up to Code:

  • Repair sewer main line from restrooms to cleanout located outside the building
