Change Order 1 Roof Flynn.pdf
Background & Rationale: This change order will be covered by the board approved contingency fund for the roofing projects.
During facility assessments of Blue Ridge Elementary in 2017, brick mortar tuck pointing repair needs on this section of the building were noted and highlighted. At this time the deterioration of the mortar joints were visible, and standard brick tuck pointing was suggested on the parapet wall as well as the adjacent vertical pilasters. The replacement of the roof was also recommended due to multiple roof leaks on the east section of the building. When work began in 2019 for the Building Upgrades project mortar and sealant surrounding the base of the parapet was removed and a steel angle was exposed over the second story windows. It was discovered at this time the steel angle was deteriorating and swelling due to continued exposure to moisture over time. The swelling of the steel angle triggered the parapet wall section to tilt toward the roof and put strain on the adjacent pilasters. Due to the timing of this discovery and the future roof project scheduled to begin in the fall it was recommended to cover this work scope with the roof installer.
The cost of tuck pointing will be credited back by the renovation contractor as the roofing contractor will now conduct the parapet repair.
Budget to be Charged: Bond Contingency
Motion: I move that the Board of Education approve the attached change order in the amount of $51,899.00.
