NOTICE:  As part of the new roof being installed on the Allied Health/Nursing Building, the contractor is also putting a new roof on the Atrium.  Since the Atrium cannot hold the weight of the tar kettle, the tar kettle must be placed at ground level.  This results in the odors observed this week. 

 

As the contractor removes sections of the roof, he installs new roofing underlayment material and applies the new roof membrane.  When the contractor applies the new roofing membrane, he uses hot tar to seal the new roof.  This work will continue through the weekend until next Wednesday.  After the tar work is complete the contractor will continue installing flashing on the walkway roof through the end of next week. 

 

At some point in the future, the contractor will return to the walkway roof and install the final roofing layer, a cap sheet.  The contractor will have to use tar to apply the cap.  A mass email will be sent out prior to the start of this work.
