JAARS Roof Extension and Overlay

JAARS’s hanger was constructed in approximately 19xx as a prefabrication steel build.  This project was to overlay a new metal roof over the existing leaking roof. As part of the project, a smaller attached building would have a new roof that was constructed in the 60s.  The construction would occur while the building is occupied.  The project grew into an extension of the roof over the existing building when no one could find any structural information for the smaller building.  The challenge was to attach the new steel structurer to the existing steel.  The steel members for the prefabricated build are not standard steel shapes.  Each column and beam was measured and analyzed with the additional loading.  The existing canopy was in poor condition and was elected to be removed.  The roof addition was extended to edge of the canopy to resolve overloading the structure and foundation of the existing building.  The total cost of the project was $450,000, the portion of the roof extension was approximately $85,000.  The project was completed on time and with no change orders.

Nelson Hall and Associates was the consultant for the roof overlay.
