Update on 5000 Building Roof Project

College community,

In response to the questions you have sent to me and to Kim Clark, Director of Facilities and Capital Projects, about the 5000 building roof repair work, I would like to share the following additional information about the project’s timeline. 

  • As indicated in the attached map, contractors began work on the southeast corner of the building.  For the remainder of this week, the contractor will be focusing on the south end.  Adhesive work will take place from 9:00 a.m. – Noon today (September 21).  On Thursday and Friday of this week, the contractor will be using a torch to complete work on the south side.  Maintenance will be closing the air dampers to prevent the outside air from coming come into the building since there will be a strong smell from the torch work.  This odor is not toxic but does have a strong aroma. 
  • From September 26 – 30, the contractors will be working on the west end of the building and then moving to the middle of the north side of the building.   Adhesive work will be done each day from 9:00 a.m. – Noon.  On September 29 and 30, the contractor will be completing the final part of these sections with a torch.  We will close the dampers again on those two days. 
  • From October 3 – 7, the contract will be finishing up the north end of the building and the west side.  Adhesive work will be done each day from 9:00 a.m. – Noon.  On October 6 and 7, the contractor will be completing the final part of these sections with a torch.  We will close the dampers again on those two days.

Facilities Director Kim Clark will continue to go through the 5000 building each day to verify the areas with odor related to the roofing project and to check in with occupants.  You can also send questions and concerns directly to me or Kim.

The 5000 roof project, like others locally and across the country, has been impacted by delays in the supply chain.  We know this is an extremely busy time of year at the college and appreciate your patience and understanding.

Thank you.
