Wharton Center - replace existing roof sections one, two, three and four
Project phase: Construction
- The original roof was installed in 1982, and is beginning to fail and cause potential structural and other cosmetic building damage.
- Recent infrared study showed significant moisture in the existing roof insulation barrier indicating the need for replacement.
- Remove existing conventional roofs and replace with new.
- Inverted Roof Membrane Assembly (IRMA) style roof to be installed on roof three – over Great Hall stage.
- Smells inside building; will be alleviated by installing temporary charcoal filters.
- Loading dock will be used as a site setup space, causing one month of temporary relocated parking.
- Sidewalk closure between FRIB and Wharton for one month. This will be further coordinated during design/construction.
- Building will remain open during work. Construction will avoid major performances
