Professional Roof Consultants, Inc., at the request of the District Architect, assisted the District in determining the source of recurring roof leaks experienced at the Gymnasium and Cafeteria roof areas.  PRC determined that the 11 year old metal panel roofs were experiencing systemic failure and developed repair and replacement concepts.  Ultimately the District chose to replace the failing metal panel roofs, and PRC was selected as the roof consultant to work with the Architect to develop roof systems for the main school and for the pool building.  Wind design was critical at this site as it is located in a special 100 mph wind region at the mouth of the Columbia Gorge, and some roof areas were over 75 feet high.  This project is significant to the work anticipated to be undertaken by the Corvallis School District in many ways, with great similarity as the facility was continuously occupied over the summer months by students participating in summer programs, football practices, and the pool facility was occupied continuously as well.  The pool serves as a profit center for the District, and is open to the public at various times during the day and evening.  Coordinating the roof removal and new roof installation presented many challenges that were successfully overcome by the entire team during construction.  Some delays in material procurement also adversely affected the construction schedule resulting in delays that pushed project completion beyond the start of the school year.  While the bulk of the work was completed, fall protection systems and some installation completion tasks were ongoing while school was in session.  Schedules were coordinated to reduce disruption to the learning processes within the building.
