Trautman Associates is providing professional design services for capital improvements in two phases. The first phase involved replacement of more than 164,000 SF of District building roofs at a cost of approximately $4.3 million. Phase 2, in progress now, involves selected preservation projects at five District buildings and is targeted for completion by September 2019.

  • Phase 1, Roof Replacements. The existing single-ply and built-up roofs were more than 20 years old, deteriorated and thermally inefficient. A detailed roof inspection and core sampling revealed that the existing roof systems were unsuitable to be incorporated into the new roof system. A low VOC EPDM applied roof system and additional insulation were installed to improve energy efficiency and reduce utility costs. Trautman recommended a thermally efficient roofing system, with consideration given to the type of insulation and R-value, reflectivity and emissivity of the roofing membrane and materials, membrane color, durability and the ability to potentially extend the roofs life cycle to maximize the service life and reduce future waste.
  • Phase 2, Preservation Projects. Work includes the full range of preservation and maintenance projects such as classroom, science lab, office and nurse’s office renovations; access/security enhancements; ceiling, wall, and floor repairs/replacements; repairs/upgrades to mechanical, electrical (including lighting), plumbing, fire protection systems; and site-work including parking lot reconstruction projects.
