PLC Roof Work Advisory 6/22/20 – 7/23/20

UPDATE 7/2/20:

We have confirmation that Anderson Roofing will be working on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th.  We have asked that they concentrate on the penthouse roof for all three days, which means radio communication will be shut down for the weekend.

 

UPDATE 6/26/20:

We just received word from the contractor on the PLC Roof project that they will not be working this weekend due to the potential for rain.  There will be no radio communication shut down as stated in the description below.

 

Begin: Monday, June 22nd, 2020

End:    Thursday, July 23rd, 2020

Building and Area Impacted: PLC (Prince Lucien Campbell), plus Kincaid Street, just south of 14th Street.

Scope:  Removal and reroofing of the top level, and the mechanical room.

Services Impacted:

  • A large crane will be placed on Kincaid Street, just south of the intersection with 14th Avenue.
  • Kincaid Street will be closed per the Traffic Safety plan for at least the first two weeks of construction and possibly into the third week of July 6 – 10.
  • Vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be impacted, as well as parking.
  • Penthouse work and therefore radio communications shut downs, will be on weekends only. The weekend of June 27 and 28 July 3rd, 4th, and 5th, and the weekend of July 11th and 12th will see shutdowns.  If needed, and if it does not interfere with UO activities, Anderson will work on the penthouse the weekend of July 4, but because this is a holiday they are trying to give the crew the time off.

Extra Notes:  Anderson Construction has requested use of a bathroom on the top floor of the PLC.  They will provide a portable toilet on the roof and on the street but would like to have access to running water mainly as part of the COVID response.  This bathroom would not see a great deal of use.  There are two bathrooms on the south side near the roof entrance. Please let me know what you think-we do not want to increase risk of exposure to people in the building.
