School board will vote on contract to replace Gordon’s roof

June 9th, 2014 at Mon, 9th, 2014 at 10:37 am by Kipp Robertson

The North Kitsap School Board is being asked to approve a contract with Tremco Incorporated to replace the Gordon Elementary roof.

If approved, the roof replacement will cost the district $391,136.76, plus tax. The work will be done by Weatherproofing Technologies Inc., a branch of Tremco, which submitted the lowest bid for the project.

The board will vote on the contract during the regular board meeting on June 11 in the administration building at 18360 Caldart Ave., Poulsbo.

Replacing Gordon’s roof was expected as the next big building project. As reported in March, Dave Dyess, the district’s director of facilities and maintenance, hoped to have work done on the roof before the 2014-15 school year.

If the contract is approved, it will be the second roof replacement project in less than two years. The district had extensive work done on Vinland Elementary’s roof the summer of 2013.
