Project: Expo Roof Replacement
Status: Design work is well underway on the identified projects, with some preliminary bid packages already awarded on the EXPO building.
Maximum Allocation: $ 2 Million
Project Description: :

The roof of the Expo building has reached its useful life and is being replaced. It was installed in the 1970's and received significant hail damage during a recent storm. Roof replacement will entail the removal of existing membrane and insulation then a new rigid insulation board will be attached to the ?roof deck? and a new single ply roof membrane will be installed.

The monitor along the ridge of the roof will be modified to enhance ventilation within the building, particularly during motorized events such as the annual Chili Bowl. Damper and louvers will be installed along the north and south faces of the monitor and perimeter walls. The intent is to enhance natural ventilation to bring fresh air into the building and to exhaust the noxious fumes out at the monitor level. There are fans present in the monitor now and may be utilized as specific events require to assist in evacuating noxious fumes from the building.
