Print This Post  Email This Post

The City of Burien on Monday (Aug. 5) announced that it is seeking a contractor to re-roof the Community Center, which was remodeled and opened in May, 2010.

The deadline to apply is 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16.

The building – which once served as the main Burien branch of the King County Library – is located at 14700 6th Ave SW.

“The project includes the re-roofing of an existing 20,180 roof at the Burien Community Center,” the announcement reads. “The existing roof is a combination of 10,485 SF of low slope built-up roofing and 9,695 SF of steep slope composite shingle roofing. The roof replacement will include shingle removal and replacement on steep slopes, PVC overlay and replacement on low slopes, and other miscellaneous work as required to perform roof replacement. The project includes all work to be performed on an occupied community center, so special attention will be given to facility impacts and visitor safety during construction.

Here’s the full announcement:

    As a construction consultant and owner’s rep (not soliciting this project) I hope this city does not repeat the disaster that is the fire station.

    Do not expect that any city engineers can handle this, and hire a competent, experienced owner’s representative to oversee this (and any/all) public works projects. We’ve suffered too many poorly managed projects in this town to go through another one.

    Pick up a phone.

      I don’t believe the city had anything to do with the fire statation. Am I wrong?

        You are not wrong. The city had nothing to do with the fire station project, and the gentlemen above has no idea what he’s talking about. I commented on this last night, but for some reason my post is gone. Weird.
