Roof Rehabilitation of Museum and Music Building
Project Update as of October 21, 2019
We have begun the process to design the replacement of roofs on the Museum and Music Building. The design firm Lothrop Associates is currently developing schematic drawings and specifications for the college and State Construction Fund to review. We are tentatively looking to start construction in the Spring of 2020.
In a continuation of repairs and stabilization to the exterior of our buildings, we have selected two more buildings for roof rehabilitation. These building’s roofs have surpassed their warranties and suffer from a number of leaks and weather-related deterioration.
The Neuberger Museum of Art houses an impressive collection of art as well as exhibits various pieces throughout the year. A recent project replaced the buildings windows and doors as well as addressed heating and cooling issues. This project will expand upon that and help in secure the building’s envelop.
The Music Building’s roof is in need of replacing and is part of a larger envisioned project to address masonry and fenestration issues.
This project will allow us to address a number of issues on both buildings, stop further deterioration, and help in increasing overall building energy efficiency.
